X-STEM 2017 Symposium Travel Costs

$45 of $700 goal

Raised by 2 people in 1 month
Through my podcast, The Wired Homeschool, I've been covering tech and STEM-related topics for 7 years. Much of that has been through reading articles online or interviewing people via Skype.

The upcoming X-STEM Symposium in Washington DC is an opportunity for me to meet with other educators and hear thought-leaders in the field of STEM education.

X-STEM - presented by the U.S. Department of Defense - is an Extreme STEM Symposium for middle through high school students featuring interactive presentations by leading STEM innovators who aim to empower and inspire kids about careers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM).

Homeschoolers attend free so the cost of admission is covered. In fact, I plan to bring three of my kids with me to attend and experience this symposium first-hand.

Funds raised will be used for travel expenses: gas money, lodging, and food. We plan to drive down and stay in an AirBnB or hotel (whichever is cheaper) for 2 nights. 

While at the conference I will interview attendees and speakers. I plan to have my kids help with the process so this is a learning experience for them too! 

Audio and video content will be used for upcoming podcasts and YouTube videos.

I hope you'll help me attend this one-day conference. Any funds raised over $700 will be put towards attending other education-related conferences or podcasting expenses.

Thank you for partnering with me to create excellent podcasting content and providing an exciting STEM experience for my kids!
