Science and Education Track Programming

RealtimeSTEAM is once again partnering with Phoenix Comic Fest (formerly Phoenix Comicon) to provide Science and Education programming during the four-day geek celebration. Scheduled for May 24-27, 2018 at the Phoenix Convention Center, Phoenix Comic Fest 2018 will include over 100 hours of panels, expos and interactive spaces highlighting the scientists, engineers and research institutions in Arizona that put the science in science fiction.

Receive Professional Development Credits for Attending Our Programming

K-12 and community college instructors receive Professional Development (PD) credits Sponsored by the Arizona Department of Education for attending our programming with credentialed panelists (Masters, PhD, or 5 years in an industry). Attending panels, the EduTech Expo and visiting the Science Hall of Heroes all qualify for PD.

We use a proprietary text-based system for PD registration. Find out how to register outside the Science & Education panel rooms N130, N131AB & N131C on the first floor of the North building of Phoenix Convention Center.

Professional Development certificates will be emailed to the address provided at registration. Examples of 2017 PD panels may be found here.
