Come join us in the conference playground and experience hands-on activities using STEM-inspired technology, among other things. The Playground is not a typical session you attend, but rather a time for you to investigate, explore, and play firsthand with different STEM tools. Visit with the technology trainers from Utah’s Regional Service Centers, UEN, U of U, SUU STEM Center, Jordan District, and the STEM Action Center. Come and go as you'd like, or spend an hour or more in the Playground!
