ATE Events — October 2018

Past

Small Unmanned Aircraft Systems (sUAS) are permeating many sectors of industry, and are increasingly being employed as data collection platforms to support of an array of applications.  Applications span disciplines and industries and can include:  planning, natural resource management, marketing, inspection of structures, agricultural production, permitting, and public safety.  Specific sensors can be used to tailor application needs. Flights can be scheduled and conducted under short notice to accommodate weather, and temporal considerations.  sUAS operations support efficient workflows and provide opportunities for ‘data on demand’.

Cost: $400 (includes three days of instruction, materials/supplies, and lunches during the workshop).

National Nanotechnology Day (#NationalNanoDay) is an annual celebration featuring a series of community-led events and activities on or around October 9 to help raise awareness of nanotechnology, how it is currently used in products that enrich our daily lives, and the challenges and opportunities it holds for the future. This date, 10/9, pays homage to the nanometer scale, 10–9 meters.

Planning for various events and activities is underway at schools, universities, and various organizations around the country! The theme for this year’s National Nanotechnology Day is “Nano in Motion,” highlighting the dynamic progress of nanotechnology. Participants also are encouraged to get active while exploring nanotechnology concepts.

The conference will focus on Career Pathways implementation at the state and local levels. The conference’s 900+ attendees will consist of a broad cross-section of stakeholders comprising secondary and postsecondary educators, workforce development professionals/staff, and employers.

NCPN is excited to be hosting the conference in Louisville. There's plenty to do including cultural venues, restaurants, and Churchill Downs. Museums include the Louisville Slugger Museum and Factory, Kentucky Derby Museum, Muhammad Ali Center, and the Frazier History Museum, among others.

Join current and alumni AAAS Science & Technology Policy Fellows as they explore the science policy arena through projects from academia, government, industry, and the nonprofit arena. Challenging themselves to communicate visually, each presenter will present a “flash talk” – 20 images for only 20 seconds each. It will be a stimulating and enlightening evening! 
 
Following the flash talks is a science policy open house and networking reception with representatives from various AAAS programs, partner scientific societies, science policy agencies, and organizations. Exhibit tabling begins before the talks and continues during the reception. Join us for this fast-paced evening of compelling issues and discussion. Sponsored by AAAS.

Engage in in-depth, intimate workshops focused on equity, implementing three-dimensional teaching, learning, and assessing in STEM classrooms. There will be sessions for elementary, middle, and high school educators in all science disciplines. Come learn about how implementing standards-based STEM curriculum has improved student experiences in Washington.

Please join AAAS for a lecture by Paul Offit on communicating science to the public. We have moved from scientific illiteracy to science denialism. Today, people simply declare their own truths: vaccines cause autism; climate change isn’t real; evolution and creationism are equally valid hypotheses. As a consequence, science is losing its rightful place as a source of truth. Scientists are in the best position to combat this growing trend. However, those who choose to explain science to the press and the public face many challenges. The AAAS will discuss some of those challenges and offer suggestions on how best to deal with them.
