Welcome to the 2014 USTA Conference!!!

Utah Valley Convention Center - Provo, UT

We have worked hard to make sure that there is something for every science teacher at every hour of the conference.  Please make sure that after a breakout session you take the time to fill out a survey.  Every survey you fill out is an entry into our raffle for some great prizes to use in the classroom and on your free time.

The Wasatch Institute of Technology is Utah's first computer science high school. Opening to 9-12 grade students at our Daybreak campus in South Jordan in August 2014, WIT's mission is to prepare tomorrow's Network/Systems and Software Engineers through Next Generation Education. While our focus on technology is swell, it's our educational approach we're most excited about.

Our unique teaching model breaks down traditional barriers in education like subject area silos, "cram and exam"-centric class time, and being a "lone wolf" in your classroom, and replaces them with a team-based, hands-on, project-focused, practical application of the most important learning objectives. In our three week thematic and interdisciplinary periods of work, we are the "guide on the side" to help students complete their projects.

If you're a teacher who makes science come alive, want to be freed from the constraints that are holding you back, and ready to truly innovate--then WIT may be a good fit for you. Let's talk!
