The event will be held from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. in the Geissler Gymnasium. Two hundred and fifty middle and high school students and teachers are expected to attend from across the state.

            At the conference, Future Teachers Clubs, the Education Club at Eastern, high school teachers, community educators and university faculty members will offer presentations and workshops that will focus on team building, making first impressions, storytelling, math magic, public speaking and educational philosophy.

            Naugatuck High School will be presented with an award for winning the conference illustration competition. The theme for the illustration is "Young Educators Navigate for Future Success." There will also be an award given for the school that creates the best banner for the same theme.

            The conference is designed to prepare students to be future teachers as well as give them a way to experience life at Eastern. Students get to work together, have competitions and network with other students around the state.
