Announcing the 2017 Global Student Conference + Call for Proposals

The 2017 Global Student Conference, a student-organized event, will be held ONLINE on Saturday March 4th, 2017, and feature keynote speakers and crowdsourced presentations by students in grades 6-12 and college. There is no cost to participate or attend.

The theme for this year is "STEM + Entrepreneurship." The event provides an international forum for the presentation, discussion, and sharing of best practices in science, technology, engineering, mathematics and entrepreneurship in schools and other academic settings, including:
  • Fostering a better understanding of how STEM and entrepreneurship engage students, teachers, and administrators in a conversation about learning.
  • Assisting teachers and administrators in understanding how STEM and entrepreneurship impact learning both in and out of the classroom.
  • Strengthening the relationship between students, teachers, and administrators about STEM + entrepreneurship in the curriculum.
Sign up at to register to attend, to be kept informed, or to submit a proposal. The call for proposals for the conference is now open, and submissions will be accepted on a first-come basis. While everyone is invited to attend the actual event, conference session proposals will only be accepted from students! 

Please also help us promote this event, particularly to students who might consider presenting or attending. This is our third year of a student-organized online conference (it was previously called the "Student Technology Conference"), and archived recordings of the previous years are available on the site to help students become familiar with the concept. As well, training and support are provided to presenters, many of whom will be presenting for the first time.

The primary and founding sponsor of this event is Marymount School of New York. Schools interested in becoming conference partners, or organizations interested in sponsoring, can email for more information.

See you online!
