The Missouri Research Network (MOREnet) hosts a technology conference every fall. This year, the conference is Oct 9-12, with the first 2 days dedicated to teachers, librarians, tech coordinators and the last 2 days focusing on technology and infrastructure. I have attended this conference for many years and I always come away with great ideas and new contacts. The conference is held at Tan-Tar-A and costs $295 for the first 2 days (early registration price until Sept 19).
There are 3 different keynotes, including Tom Krause from the “Chicken Soup” series. To get more information or to register for the event, use this link. The breakout sessions include all things google, stem, robotics, coding, and much more. Here is a link to the daily sessions. If you are looking for a good conference within a couple of hours driving distance with a variety of topics, this conference is for you.
