International participants have included representatives from Australia, Canada, China, France, Germany, Malaysia, Mexico, Nigeria, Portugal, South Korea, and the United Kingdom.

A wide range of U.S. colleges, universities, and 12 school systems have been represented in the symposium from across the US and from many other countries.
