In the Spring of 2017, Congresswoman Marcia L. Fudge hosted the inaugural Northeast Ohio Science, Technology, Recreation, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics (NEOSTREAM) Conference in conjunction with Cuyahoga Community College (Tri-C). Over the course of three days, approximately 930 students, educators, community members and executives participated in innovative workshops, hands-on demonstrations, and tailored lectures.
This year, NEOSTREAM will be hosted in Central, with three days of activities and workshops at Cleveland State University and Tri-C from October 25 to 27.
The schedule is as follows:
Day One: Educators Day – Cleveland State University
8:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m.
Educators will participate in an immersive professional development experience – exploring, engaging in and being equipped with practical and readily available classroom strategies in leading STREAM education.
Day Two: Executive Leaders Day and Student Day – Tri-C
7:00 a.m. – 9:30 a.m. – Executive Leaders Day
School superintendents, CEOs, non-profit leaders and elected officials will convene for a strategic planning session to develop a blueprint that will strengthen and maintain the STREAM pipeline in Northeast Ohio.

Students will participate in hands-on interactive activities and sessions designed to ignite and create awareness of diversity and opportunity in STREAM careers.
