Michael Lach, special assistant for Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) Education, will participate in the upcoming symposium and exhibition “Smart Schools: Lessons Learned from Schools Successful in STEM” on Monday, Sept. 19, at Drexel University in Philadelphia. He will highlight the Obama Administration’s efforts to promote STEM education nationwide.

The National Science Foundation is hosting the one-day event that will bring together political and government leaders, and educators to share effective approaches in STEM education. There will be more than 30 interactive exhibits showing the latest innovations supporting science teaching and learning. The symposium will serve as a launch pad for the recent report by the National Research Council that indicates the primary drivers of future economic growth and job creation will be innovations largely derived from advances in science and engineering.
