  • Bismarck, ND
      • Keynotes
        • Dr. Maureen Clemmons
          • Dr. Clemmons unites creativity, collaboration, critical thinking and communication with social studies, language, and symbolism, textiles, engineering, art, mathematics, and science.  Her outside-the-box thinking and innovations have led to applications in the South American jungles, unexpected solutions in North Dakota’s oil patch…even uses on future Mars missions.
        • Graeme Wylie
          • Whether it be the critical importance of incorporating real world connections in the science being done, of using humor to connect with participants, of finding ways to partner with other people or organizations to increase impact or simply where the best places to beg, borrow and steal ideas from are, I will share how my science outreach organization has gone from 1 show a year to providing 1,000+ students in the Fargo Moorhead area with positive science experiences.
        • Karl Schaffer & Erik Stern
          • From a trio for two dancers and a basketball that gets at the physics of motion to tap dances and clapping games that reveal the mathematics of rhythm, The Dr. Schaffer and Mr. Stern Dance Ensemble has been delighting and enlightening audiences and educators for over two decades with their performances and workshops. The focus of their keynote is how problem solving, collaboration and creative and critical thinking are shared processes of choreography and STEM. They show how this overlap can be used in math and science through examples of whole body movement explorations. Karl Schaffer and Erik Stern are designated Teaching Artists with the Kennedy Center Partners in Education Program, and their book Math Dance with Dr. Schaffer and Mr. Stern is a valuable companion to their workshops. They teach at De Anza College and Weber State University, have received scores of grants, and have presented throughout North American and also in Europe and Asia.
