MLTI Student Conference

This page will be updated with more information throughout the spring. 

Each year, over one thousand students and educators gather for the MLTI Student Conference to engage in learning related to technology. The conference will be held at the University of Maine in Orono. The day begins in the Collins Center for the Arts with a welcome from a student speaker who has found ways to use his/her MLTI technology to develop a passion or solve a community issue. The day continues with a number of student/educator led sessions that participants can learn a discrete skill and then create something to take back to their schools. The day concludes with what most describe as the most exciting part - an “UBER Session” where all students will gather in the Collins Center once again for a session that is largely kept secret until the day of the event!
