STEMwave is a movement transforming education. By fostering localized partnerships between Edtech, K-12 Education, and Industry, we’re creating Schools of the Future and providing students with clear career pathways.

In today’s tech-driven society, our students must have the latest technology in their K-12 classrooms. This puzzle requires partnership between Education and Industry, and Edtech companies are the linchpin. They bridge the gap between Industry insights and school programs, shaping future, tech-savvy leaders and employees. The result? A seamless pipeline connecting education and industry, benefiting students, K-12 Education, Edtech, and Industry alike.

So, what’s your role? Join STEMwave, and you become part of this transformative movement. View this edWebinar to learn about STEMwave, understand how you can contribute, and seize the opportunity to shape the future of education. Your involvement isn’t just for your benefit; it’s a step toward a brighter, more innovative future for all. Let’s journey together, where progress thrives on partnership, and the potential is limitless. Together, we’ll redefine education for a tech-driven world.

This edWebinar is of interest to K-12 teachers, school and district leaders, and education technology leaders.

*While STEMwave is not free, it is a cost-effective program that provides teacher training, mentoring and support from industry experts, plug-and-play curricula, classroom materials, and opportunities to win prizes.

Throughout the years, Ace has managed numerous STEM events at local schools, leading and participating in various levels of STEM scholastic activities and discussions. He has made a positive impact on countless elementary, middle, and high schoolers, increasing their interest and knowledge of STEM activities. Ace is a native of Detroit, MI, and a graduate of Purdue University.

Adam Wolf

Adam Wolf is a lifelong learner who has spent the last 15 years in the classroom guiding students through physics and engineering concepts. He has worked to create student-centered curricula through modeling-based instruction in multiple levels of physics, and project-based robotic and engineering courses. Whether working on incorporating more literacy-based skills into science or designing new courses, Adam believes that engaging curricula and reflective pedagogy lead to more successful students.

David Conelias jumped into entrepreneurship in the education industry running afterschool and summer camps, evolved into being a full-time classroom teacher, and is now a well-rounded STEM educator who loves sharing his experiences and teaching others. Before education, Dave worked in both large and small engineering companies holding a variety of positions including leadership level. His career was cross-disciplinary in electrical, pneumatics, hydraulics, systems, design, and manufacturing. Dave supported production, prototype, and development programs throughout his engineering career.
