Teachers Receive Professional Development at Phoenix Comic Fest with RealTimeSTEAM.

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. There is no additional fee for earning PD credits beyond your admission to Phoenix Comic Fest.

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.
