The day will feature a special presentation from Chris Lehmann, Principal of the Science Leadership Academy in the School District of Philadelphia.  Entitled Building School 2.0, Lehmann’s presentation will examine ideas of constructivist pedagogy and the use of 21st century tools to create schools that are engaging, caring and relevant places of learning for everyone involved.

The day will also feature presentations with STAR Discovery Educators Traci Blazosky, Lee Anne Daughrity, Julia Davis, MaryAnn Sansonetti and Donna Teuber.
