Welcome to iSTEM-Ed 2021!

      The International STEM Education Conference (iSTEM-Ed) is an annual premier event to provide an opportunity for educators, academics, researchers, scientists, engineers, technologists, and practitioners to share their experience, knowledge, and techniques in the learning and teaching of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM). In addition, Art (A) is included in the acronym (STEAM). This addition is to effectively improve education quality in a variety of 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) Nakhon Phanom (iSTEM-Ed 2019) and Phranakorn Si Ayutthaya. (iSTEM-Ed 2020)

       iSTEM-Ed 2021 or the 6th International STEM Education Conference is taking place in Pattaya Chonburi, Thailand, on November 10-12, 2021.
