T³IC goes virtual for 2021

We are excited to bring you the 33rd annual T³IC, now in an all-virtual format. Join us and your colleagues as we all come together to encourage, engage, and empower each other in this shared learning experience.

We are already hard at work planning the virtual conference program that will be everything you’d expect from a T³IC — thought-provoking, engaging and fun. Some things you can look forward to:

  • Dynamic sessions led by thought-leaders in math, science and STEM education
  • New strategies and resources for using TI technology to get students excited about math, science and STEM, whether they are learning in person or virtually
  • Connecting and sharing with like-minded educators from around the world
  • Special events and opportunities to win fun prizes

The 2021 Virtual T³IC will take place on consecutive Saturdays, Feb. 20 and 27, with a special preconference day on Feb. 13. You can experience the virtual conference live or at your convenience on demand.

Registration will open in October and is just $49.
