    The fourth annual Tennessee STEM Innovation Summit will take place on May 8th and 9th, 2018 in Nashville, Tennessee. The Innovation Summit features interactive learning sessions designed to stimulate participants’ thinking around a broad range of strategies used to integrate STEM in the classroom. Additional opportunities to explore what’s working in other states will be presented by STEMx and its national partners. Call for presenters will be released in January. 

    As the state’s premier annual STEM event, the Tennessee STEM Innovation Summit brings together leaders, innovators, and champions from across the state that are united by a passion to advance excellence in STEM education for all Tennesseans. For the 2018 fourth annual Summit, we will be joining forces with STEMx, a national coalition of 21 states and US territories, designed to provide an accessible platform to share, analyze and disseminate quality STEM education tools across the Nation. Both the TSIN and STEMx work to transform education, expand the number of STEM teachers, and increase student achievement in STEM to grow tomorrow’s innovators.

    The Innovation Summit features interactive learning sessions designed to stimulate participants’ thinking around a broad range of strategies used to integrate STEM in the classroom. The learning sessions are intended to provide attendees opportunities to interact with educational leaders and practitioners that are seeing success with STEM practices designed to raise student interest and achievement in STEM education.

    What Is Mole Day?

    Celebrated annually on October 23 from 6:02 a.m. to 6:02 p.m., Mole Day commemorates Avogadro's Number (6.02 x 1023), which is a basic measuring unit in chemistry. Mole Day was created as a way to foster interest in chemistry. Schools throughout the United States and around the world celebrate Mole Day with various activities related to chemistry and/or moles.

    For a given molecule, one mole is a mass (in grams) whose number is equal to the molar mass of the molecule. For example, the water molecule has an molar mass of 18, therefore one mole of water weighs 18 grams. Similarly, a mole of neon has a molar mass of 20 grams. In general, one mole of any substance contains Avogadro's Number of molecules or atoms of that substance. This relationship was first discovered by Amadeo Avogadro (1776-1858) and he received credit for this after his death.
