An E-in-STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) event
will also be held on Saturday, Oct. 15. Sponsored by the FIE
Conference and the American Society for Engineering Education
(ASEE), this event consists of K-12 STEM workshops, speakers and a
technical session. This event, for K-12 educators and
