2008 STEM Best Practices Conference
February 28, 2008

The STEM Best Practices Conference was held February 28, 2008 in Austin, Texas. Educators from across the state, including STEM campuses and non-STEM campuses came together for a day of learning, networking and sharing. If you want to participate in the conference, you should prepare not only a paper, with an abstract and main theses, but also a self-presentation, for this you should contact letter writing services, so that, firstly, you are allowed to the conference, secondly, to introduce scientists and listeners with you.
