The 2017 Student STEM + Entrepreneurship Conference will be held on Saturday, March 4, 2017 from 9 AM to 9 PM EST.  The conference features keynote speakers and crowdsourced presentations by students in grades 6 through 12 and college.  This annual online event is free to attend!

The money we are raising through this Kickstarter campaign goes to pay for our conference infrastructure, including the presentation software and the scheduling software; as well as to pay for our educational consultants.

The conference is the initiative of the Marymount School of New York's Student Technology Team.  We work in collaboration with Willard Public Schools in Missouri; University School of Milwaukee; and the Hockaday School in Dallas, TX.

Check out our conference website at: globalstudentconference.com

Risks and challenges

The total cost of the conference is $15,000. Part of our funding comes from our school's Innovation Fund and additional funding comes from our partner schools.
