ITEEA Booth 230

If you are going to ITEEA next week, stop by to say hello.

I’ll be in booth 230, right across from PLTW. I’m giving away free pins to everyone who tells me they read this blog each week.

I’ll also be giving a presentation on Thursday in the Exhibitor Showcase from 12:00-12:50 about Passport to Engineering – ways to use it and how it can benefit your students. We’ll be giving away freebies and by attending, you also have the chance to win a free copy.

I look forward to seeing you there!

Future Engineers Day

I gave the keynote presentation last week at a Future Engineers Day event in Oregon.

The lunchtime organization of the event was outstanding. The room was filled with 350 students, 70+ engineers and 50+ round tables that seated 8-10 people each.

Each engineer received a seating assignment so there was at least one engineer at each table. Lunch was filled with the students hearing about an engineer’s experiences and being able to ask questions and talk about their aspirations.

Are you involved in a similar event? How do you encourage students?
