ATE Central

ATE Events — June 2018


This series of two free workshops were created to provide post-secondary faculty and administrators with resources (labs, presentations, etc.) and guidance to effectively teach undergraduate nanotechnology courses. The workshops will also cover the strategies for conducting the NPDP-provided labs, as well as, equipment needs, costs and sustaining costs. The various modes in which institutions may choose to present this material and their labs will be examined varying from complete in-house to web-augmented joint offerings.

These workshops do not need to be taken in sequence, but both are required for participants to be eligible to attend one of four NPDP sites for a hands-on workshop.

The Nano Curriculum Materials I workshop will focus on: materials, safety and equipment overview; bottom-up manufacturing and bio-nanotechnology; and deposition. The workshop will be held on four consecutive Friday sessions beginning on April 6, 2018 (April 6, 13, 20, and 27) from 11:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. EST. For more information, visit the workshop website ( Applications are due March 23, 2018 and can be found at

The Nano Curriculum Materials II workshop will focus on: etching; patterning and lithography; and nanocharacterization.

The key benefits of attending the 2018 BIO International Convention are access to global biotech and pharma leaders via BIO One-on-One Partnering, exposure to industry though-leaders with over 1,500 education sessions at your fingertips, and unparalleled networking opportunities with 16,000+ attendees from 74 countries.

Each year Bio-Link Fellows from across the nation travel to the Clark Kerr Campus (CKC) in Berkeley, CA to learn about the latest practices in biotechnology education. Come join us for our 20th Annual Summer Fellows Forum. 

At the Bio-Link National Summer Fellows Forum, participants learn new skills and techniques, examine and test exemplary curriculum models and course materials, discuss ethical, legal, and social issues in biotechnology and learn how to disseminate this information within their own regions. Fellows are expected to implement new strategies into their own programs, to lead regional staff development activities, and provide prompt response to follow-up surveys

Lane Community College4000 E 30th AveEugeneOR97405

As the Energy industry continues to grow at an exponential rate, so does the need for highly trained educators and trainers who possess both the technical skills needed to understand building sciences and the teaching skills to effectively teach the next generation of Energy practitioners. Each participant will be given resources that they can use in their own classes along with some hands on experience deploying dataloggers, analyzing energy usage, basic energy auditing and using calculations to document energy savings. Class size is limited to 15 people per year to encourage active participation and ensure plenty of opportunity for individual questions. We provide plenty of opportunities to ask questions of Lane Community College instructors. Instructors will include in their presentations how they run classes, sample projects, example materials, typical assignments as well as examples of what’s worked and what hasn’t.
