Thanks to more than 250 attendees, speakers, and exhibitors who made the ISTS Fall Conference a success! This year's conference theme was Elements of STEM.  It featured keynote speaker Chad Dorsey, breakout sessions, and something new - the STEM Expo. The exhibit floor included exhibits from commercial vendors, non-profits, academic institutions, and government agencies. Below you will find a few photos from the conference. We will be adding other photos, including award winners.
