ATE Events — July 2019


(3 days)

Madison Area Technical College2125 Commercial AvenueMadisonWI53704U.S.

Learn how to teach solar principles in effective, engaging ways in the classroom. ATE members are invited to attend the fifth annual STEM Educator Solar Institute. Participants will use tools of the trade to install and commission a residential size solar photovoltaic array, review and practice necessary safety measures and electrical principles, and perform ready to use hands-on classroom lab activities that will enable students to bring solar energy to life in the classroom.

Arizona Project WET in collaboration with Marine Advanced Technology Education (MATE) is providing this workshop for 5th-12th grade educators!

Using MATE & APW materials:

  • Investigate the Central AZ Project delivery system
  • Understand how ROVs are used in the water industry
  • Engage in the engineering design, building, and testing of marine ROVs
  • Develop an understanding of buoyancy, hydrodynamics, forces, energy, electrical circuitry, wiring, soldering, and control systems
  • Integrate ROVs into a class or club

This 4-day program is recommended for community colleges that are serious about broadening participation in their institution's STEM programs where women are underrepresented and are ready to do so in 1-years' time. During this 4-day online boot camp, participants will learn key factors for female recruitment, strategies to keep STEM students on course and improve graduation rates, and will address the STEM challenge: appeal to women who aren't excited about STEM. Participants will take away an easy to implement recruitment plan and a retention plan. The workshop runs July 11-12 and 18-19.

  1. An easy-to-implement Recruitment Plan to increase the number of women in your STEM/CTE classrooms.
  2. A Retention Plan for your school to increase the completion rate of your female (and male students), starting this semester.
  3. The knowledge and confidence you need to put these plans into action right away, and free bonus tools that will help you be even more successful.
  4. Coaching support for implementation for your team only with your trainer Donna Milgram (5.5 hours per team).
  5. A final presentation in which you'll practice highlighting your outcomes to garner support.

San Diego State University5500 Campanile DrSan DiegoCA92182

This workshop will have participants using drones for data capture and for the derivation of 3D models, designing and publishing local projects using ArcGIS Online, creating and developing StoryMaps, performing spatial analysis using ArcGIS Online, and exploring data capture apps such as Survey123. As part of this workshop, participants will develop a lesson or exercise that can be used in one of their courses.

In this workshop, participants will be introduced to experiments and techniques used in the biopharmaceutical industry to prevent microbial contamination of products, and biochemical assays that test for identity, purity and potency of the drug substance and product. Microbiological QC activities will include endotoxin testing, molecular and biochemical approaches to microbe detection and identification, and environmental monitoring. Biochemical QC techniques will focus on monoclonal antibody drug substance analysis and include aggregate testing by HPLC analysis, identity and concentration determination by ELISA and purity determination by SDS PAGE. In both the microbiological and biochemical sessions, techniques ranging from basic activities through advanced laboratory exercises will be performed in order to accommodate all levels of course and program development of the participating instructors.

University of Arizona Campus Agricultural Center4101 N Campbell AveTucsonAZ85719

Join the organization to learn all about underwater robots or ROVs (remotely operated vehicles), and how ROVs are used to explore, research, and work in ocean waters. In this multi-day workshop, you will spend time aboard DISL's research vessels and see a research ROV in operation and talk with scientists who use ROVs in their research. You will build a fully functional PufferFish ROV from the circuit board up step by step and explore several relevant classroom activities that can get your students building, learning and developing skills. Given the complexity of the building task, the organization heartily suggests that teachers wanting to participate bring a partner teacher with them.

Cost: $100 registration fee, refundable upon completion of the workshop (workshop tuition, meals, and housing are FREE) Participants are required to purchase their own ROV kit (one per pair) prior to the workshop.
