M-STEM brings together students, faculty and business to strengthen understanding of Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) principles, especially relating to materials science, and to enhance K-20 technology education integration. A unique feature of MSTEM is hands-on, interactive learning which presents information in a way that engages students and teachers.
Focus on hands-on experiments, demonstrations and laboratories
Poster and oral presentation opportunities
Assistance to instructors in evaluation and course assessment methods
Networking opportunities with industry, faculty and students
Assistance with new materials technologies
Road maps and methods for development of new materials courses
Direct means for introducing materials concepts into existing courses
Opportunity for peer-reviewed publication for current and future reference
The AAAS Leadership Seminar in Science and Technology Policy is a "crash course" in science and technology (S&T) policy, designed for those who need to know how S&T policy works. It is modeled after the highly acclaimed orientation program that AAAS provides for its new S&T Policy Fellows each fall, but distills the key material into 4 1/2 days instead of two weeks. Space is limited to only 30 to 35 participants ‐ the small group setting provides an ideal opportunity to learn about the challenges and solutions of S&T policy from the experts。
- Special Populations- Assistive Technology, ELL, GT, Special Needs
- Technology Leadership- Advocacy, Planning, Funding, Accountability, Implementation and Management
- Curriculum and Instruction- Pedagogy, Design, Content Integration, Instructional Specialist
- Library/Media- Media Integration, Resources
- Tech Apps & CTE- STEM, Coding, CS, STEAM. etc.
FABTECH brings a wealth of innovation and technology solutions to Atlanta. More than 35,000 attendees and over 1,500 exhibiting companies are expected to gather once again to celebrate metal manufacturing at its best. The event also provides educational sessions and expert-led presentations covering the latest trends and technology in the metal forming, fabricating, welding and finishing industries.
Show floor admission is complimentary if you register by Nov. 2, 2018. After the deadline and on-site, the fee is $50 (US).

Educational sessions will be scheduled all day on Friday, November 9th and Saturday, November 10th. Saturday will conclude with the closing speaker at 5:00PM followed by a special evening event. Workshops, field trips, and committee meetings will be scheduled on the morning of Sunday, November 11th.
The interdisciplinary nature of robots make robotics a useful STEM pedagogical tool. There is also a significant need for industrial certification programs in robotics. Robots are increasingly used across industry sectors to improve production throughputs while maintaining product quality. The benefits of robotics, however, depend on workers with up-to-date knowledge and skills to maintain and use existing robots, enhance future technologies, and educate users. It is critical that education efforts respond to the demand for robotics specialists by offering courses and professional certification in robotics and automation. This NSF sponsored workshop introduces a new approach for teaching Industrial Robotics in electrical engineering technology programs to match industry needs and provide a replicable model for programs around the US.
This workshop is offered to faculty members of two- and four year institutions and designed for the instructors who wish to increase their experience in Industrial Robotics and is interested in revamping existing or developing new courses in Industrial Robotics.
This Project Access workshop focuses on the implications and application of Universal Design for Learning. Non-traditional students learn differently, so if we design instruction from the beginning to reach a diverse group of students, our teaching will be more effective, and students will excel.
This workshop offers training on how to make educational materials more accessible and engaging for all learners, especially Deaf and Hard of Hearing students.
Researchers Joshua Smith and Stacey Gifford from IBM's Nanobiotechnology Program cover the latest research on the relevant biology found in fluids from liquid biopsies and discuss opportunities in microfluidics for disruptive technology development to isolate and interrogate these biomarkers, aiding disease diagnosis, prognosis, and treatment-response monitoring.
The National Institutes of Health (NIH) carries out and funds biomedical research in an effort to prevent and cure common and rare diseases. The organization also trains the next generation of doctors, researchers, and medical support staff who will improve human health in the future, both across the country and around the world.
This colloquium is designed to provide community college students who are conducting undergraduate research the opportunity to share research, develop professional meeting skills and network with students from across the country.
