Registering through pdEnroller

All attendees must first register for the event through pdEnroller. Through your individual pdEnroller account (connected to your school district), the platform automatically detects if your district is a member of the NCESD STEM Cooperative. If so, the cost of registration will be deducted.


If your district is not part of the Cooperative (or you are not affiliated with a school district), you can still register via pdEnroller! You will be required to pay the $500 registration fee which will give you access to all four days of sessions.

Can’t attend the full conference? We are excited to offer a separate opportunity for individuals to attend Jo Boaler’s keynote and full-day session on Monday, August 15. Click here to register via pdEnroller. Please note: If you register for the full STEM Summit this event is included and you do not need to register separately.

Confirming your registration via Zoom Events

This year, the Summit will be using the Zoom Events platform to host the online sessions and entire conference schedule). Once you register for the event via pdEnroller (see instructions above), you will receive an email invitation from Zoom Events ( to register for access to the Zoom event lobby. Important: This gives you access to the actual online sessions and conference schedule. You must do this step.

Please note: It can take up to 5 business days to receive the email invitation from Zoom Events after you register on pdEnroller.

Still can’t find the email? Visit the Zoom Event landing page while logged into Zoom with the email address you used when registering on pdEnroller. You’ll see a blue button that says “Register” or “Join Lobby”.
