Philadelphia Marriott Downtown1201 Market StPhiladelphiaPA

The League’s STEMtech conference brings you the best of STEM, analytics, big data, advanced technology, and learning management architecture. Join colleagues at this international convening to share and explore research, best practices, and new ideas.

The biotechnology industry has grown substantially in the past 14 years and become a major contributor to the U.S. economy. Numerous job opportunities have accompanied this growth, especially for entry-level workers with specialized certificates or a two-year biotech degree. In some cases, a high-school diploma may suffice. Bio-Link, an Advanced Technology Education Center of Excellence, funded by the National Science Foundation, developed in response to educators’ need to identify biotech-related skills and create curriculum to meet that demand. As a community, Bio-Link works to share best practices in biotech education and partner with industry to ensure that the education students receive leads to opportunities for employment and career growth. This presentation will discuss the benefits and resources, like Biotech-Careers.org(link is external), that Bio-Link can offer educators in all areas of life science. New trends in biotechnology education, such as stem cell technology, genome engineering with CRISPR/Cas9, interactive movies, bioinformatics, biomanufacturing, a set of validated skill standards, the Bio-Link curriculum clearinghouse, and the establishment of school-based organizations for on-site internships and contract research will be described.

Learn how to successfully navigate policy issues facing the S&T community.

The AAAS Leadership Seminar in Science and Technology Policy is a "crash course" in science and technology (S&T) policy, designed for those who need to know how S&T policy works.

It is modeled after the highly acclaimed orientation program that AAAS provides for its new S&T Policy Fellows, but distills the key material into 5 days instead of two weeks. Space is limited to only 30 to 35 participants--the small group setting provides an ideal opportunity to learn about the challenges and solutions of S&T policy from the experts.

Innovations in “legacy sectors” of the economy – fossil fuels, manufacturing, buildings, transport, agriculture, the inter-state electric grid, health services delivery, higher education, and many others – are essential if we are to address major societal challenges like climate change, inequality, unemployment, competitiveness, and cybersecurity. Innovation in information technology, biotech, nanotech, and other frontier sectors won’t solve these long-standing problems in the absence of policy measures to overcome the obstacles that block innovation in legacy sectors. Yet we tend to focus innovation on frontiers, and are not good at bringing it to our legacy sectors. Charles Weiss and William B. Bonvillian offer ways to change directions on this with a new policy framework for delivering innovation in these areas. Join us for the discussion; much is at stake.
