Welcome to iSTEM-Ed 2020!

The International STEM Education Conference (iSTEM-Ed) is an annual premier event to provide an opportunity for educators, academicians, researchers, scientists, engineers, technologists and practitioners to share their experiences, knowledge, and techniques in learning and teaching of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) education. In addition, Art (A) is included. This is to effectively improve education qualities in different environments world-wide.

Since the first inception of iSTEM-Ed 2016 in Pattaya, it has moved around Thailand to Chiangmai (iSTEM-Ed 2017), Bangkok (iSTEM-Ed 2018) and Nakhon Phanom (iSTEM-Ed 2019) .

iSTEM-Ed 2020 or the 5th International STEM Education Conference is taking place in Hua-Hin, Thailand, on November 4-6, 2020.
