Fletcher Technical Community College1407 LA-311SchrieverLA70395United States

This course will give students the opportunity to assemble, calibrate, and experiment with the ELEV-8 v4 Quadcopter, a small unmanned aerial vehicle purpose-built for education. Students will assemble a quadcopter and learn about each of its components, their composition, and their function. Students will then learn safety, legal, and ethical considerations regarding unmanned aerial vehicles.

Instructors will introduce the Ryze Tello STEM drone and students will learn how to interface via mobile application and traditional controller. The course will teach the basics of block coding and how the Tello can be programmed for autonomous flight. You will get a chance to practice flying the Tello's in a controlled environment using the flying and coding skills acquired throughout this camp. Lastly, this course will teach students about possible application-specific modifications that can be made to the Tello using 3D print technology.

Do you feel out of your depth when teaching industry-specific topics like Quality, GMPs, cGLPs, or Documentation?

Educators at all levels desire for their students to succeed. For Community College educators teaching technical education course success is often defined as “graduates getting jobs”. Achievement of this goal is often tied to having a direct correlation between the student outcomes from the courses in the program and the industry requirements for new hires at a technician level. Industry participation in CC technical education programs is critical to ensure this correlation and also provide students with insight into the career environment and the myriad of opportunities available.

This workshop will focus on a three-step process that educators can follow to prepare them to:

  1. successfully execute the initial contact with industry
  2. be prepared for a “face to face” meeting with an industry person and
  3. invite participation of the industry/company as a supporting participant in the technician program.

During the workshop the participants will walk through the process for their particular technical education program and industry segment. Workshop results will be a checklist of items to complete and various suggestions as well as the first draft of the content that will go on a “blank sheet of paper”.

Presenter: Deb Newberry

This one hour panel discussion will focus on the need for skilled technicians, the benefits of accessing the military population to fill demand, and the role community colleges can play to facilitate veteran/employer connections. Two veteran technician training programs will be highlighted to provide examples of community college engagement.

Welcome to the Electric Vehicles Battery Tech USA Exhibition and Conference where electric vehicle battery technology innovators will meet with leading automotive manufacturers to explore new battery technologies and battery management systems for use in next-generation electric vehicles and hybrid electric vehicles.

At its core, a logic model is a visual representation of a project’s activities and intended outcomes. But it’s much more than an illustration; your logic model has many uses in and beyond your ATE proposal. This webinar will help you take your logic model to the next level. We will demonstrate how logic models illuminate projects’ underlying logic and assumptions, how they can be used to structure evaluation plans, and how they can build a collective understanding of project outcomes across stakeholder groups. You will learn how, far beyond fulfilling a proposal requirement, your logic model can be an active evaluation tool that offers benefits throughout the life of your project.

In this webinar, participants will learn (a) how to create an effective logic model and (b) how to put that logic model to use for your project and your evaluation.
