The AACC annual meeting is among the largest and most dynamic gatherings of educational leaders, attracting over 2,000 community college presidents and senior administrators, as well as international educators, representatives of business/industry and federal agencies.

The premier event for community college leaders, AACC’s Annual Convention offers unprecedented professional development as well as the opportunity to network, share, and learn from professionals in the fields of education, business and industry, and the government sector. AACC is offering a new, curated exhibit hall experience for 2018 focused on promoting heavy engagement between exhibitors and attendees.

Mentor-Connect provides a cost-free webinar to provide specifics for correctly completing forms that are required in a National Science Foundation (NSF) Advanced Technological Education (ATE) grant proposal. Forms can make up 2/3 of a final proposal submission and impact the quality and accuracy of a proposal.

Webinar Participants will

  • Know the purpose of various forms associated with NSF ATE proposals
  • Know what data to enter into each form associated with NSF ATE proposals
  • Learn the importance of providing consistent information on forms and other components of a proposal
  • Be alerted to common errors that can be avoided
  • Get answers to questions on completing required proposal forms


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.

Please join presenters Kendra Bouda and Rachael Bower on May 15, 2018 at 1pm EDT for this free webinar on archiving with ATE Central. The presenters will share tips on organizing your materials for archiving, using the archive submission form, and tracking your submissions online. See what happens with your submissions behind the scenes, as ATE Central staff process your materials, add metadata, and make your resources discoverable to the ATE community and beyond. You will also learn how to find curriculum and other content that ATE grantees have created and shared for you to adapt and use for your own purposes.

NEATEC presents a FREE, three-day workshop on mechatronics for 2-year and/or 4-year college professors with particular emphasis in applications and techniques for the Semiconductor and Nanotechnology manufacturing industries. This is an opportunity for participants to learn about operational principles and trouble-shooting techniques for automation systems relevant to the semiconductor and advanced manufacturing industries and application of this information in the laboratory and classroom. This workshop is offered at SUNY Polytechnic’s Albany campus.

For 2-year/4-year college faculty in Electrical Technology, Mechanical Technology, Semiconductor Technology, or related programs

Attendees will be provided electronic copies of all workshop materials for optional use in their labs and lectures.

The New York Geographic Alliance is pleased to invite teachers and students to Cornell University for the B-WET Watershed Symposium. Teachers and their students will be presenting the work that they have done in their part of the watershed - water-testing, mapping, and service projects. All educators and youth are invited to join us for the day. 

They especially want to offer teachers and students table space and presentation time if they have projects they want to share. (When registering below, indicate what you need in the comment section). This event is FREE. There will be a continental breakfast at 9:30 AM and lunch will be served at noon.
