The project is designed to help faculty increase students' interest and engagement in the study and learning of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) principles, practices, and careers through guitar design and building. The Summer Institutes are open to all STEM subject area educators in the 9-12 High school grade levels, community college levels and freshman/sophomore university instruction. Participants will join the existing cohort of STEM Guitar Institute Educators/Fellows around the country teaching STEM content using the guitar as a focus. Fellows help each other with project implementation and contribute to the project’s Applied Learning Community, curriculum and assessment. You will receive a $300 stipend, a completed guitar, a support package at the Institute, and will have the opportunity to apply for a limited number of start-up packages to help launch STEM guitar at your school.

This exciting four-day workshop provides the opportunity for you to connect with your peers from across the United States in an online workshop. This program is very highly rated by all the teachers and faculty who have participated in the previous in-person version of the program. The workshop will help you learn how to instruct your students in developing essential teambuilding skills as well as providing technology related experiences to help you integrate your learning into your STEM classroom and lab environment. The teambuilding, professional, and technical skills presented in the Program are designed to be directly applicable to your classroom.

In this workshop, participants will be introduced to web-based applications that allow for imagery interpretation and analysis. Additionally, this workshop will cover remote sensing workflows in ArcGIS Online and ArcGIS Pro. Participants will work with Landsat, Sentinel, and other imagery sources. Workshop participants will develop an exercise or lesson for use in one of their classes.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this workshop has been reformatted to a one-day online virtual workshop. Due to the shift from a three-day in person to one-day online, this workshop has been reformatted to center around STEM: Drones Take Flight.

This is an introductory course for drones and how to economically establish programs within your school. Participants will learn basic drone anatomy and what makes them tick. The workshop will cover safety principles, regulations, and best practices in maintaining and documenting your drone programs. Participants will be introduced to economical STEM drones and how they can be used in multiple ways to enhance education in a variety of skill sets. Student competitions and how you can start a team(s) in your school or organization will be discussed.

Who: This workshop is a baseline introduction to drones and how they can be incorporated into new and/or existing educational programs. This workshop can also be adapted for post-secondary educators or anyone looking to enrich existing programs or outreach activities.

MNT-EC is holding a Summer Seminar Series every Wednesday, August thru October. Each seminar will feature one of the MNT-EC's very own members who will talk about their summer of 2021 professional development opportunities. Opportunities include writing groups, clean room labs, nano safety and other exciting hands on activities.

The second webinar in this series will be lead by Greg Kepner, CO-PI of the newly funded Micro Nano Technology Education Center (MNT-EC) and former PI of the Midwest Photonics Education Center (MPEC). Greg will be talking about the professional development opportunities he will have available for participants in the summer of 2021.

Single-photon avalanche photodiode (SPAD) and silicon photomultiplier (SiPM) are related photodetector technologies. Among several similarities, one stands out: each is able to produce a measurable output current in response to a single photon. Only one other point photodetector, a photomultiplier tube (PMT), is capable of such detection. The extraordinary light sensitivity of these three photodetectors is due to their very high (~106) intrinsic gain. Compared to a PMT, SiPM and SPAD are newer technologies, only now being adopted in those applications involving ultra-low light levels. Both can offer a number of advantages over a PMT, without sacrificing performance. Some of the advantages are a smaller size, better mechanical and electrical durability, lower power consumption, and immunity to magnetic fields and ambient light. Despite these advantages, SiPM and SPAD are the less known and understood photodetectors compared to a PMT. The purpose of this webinar is to create a greater awareness of SiPMs and SPADs among engineers, researchers, and scientists in varied technical fields but involved in low-light level photodetection.

Topics of presentation:

  • Discussion of the principles of operation of a SPAD and SiPM, followed by a brief comparison of both photodetectors to a PMT.
  • Discussion of optoelectronic characteristics of modern SiPMs and SPADs, whose understanding is essential in the selection of the optimal photodetector.
  • At the core of any photodetection system is a photodetector together with the front-end electronics; thus, the webinar reviews the most common detection electronic circuits.

Signal-to-Noise Ratio (SNR) is a statistical figure of merit used to measure the performance of a detector.  It is a simple calculation that can compare various detectors to help you choose the right one for your application.  Stochastic simulation of detector performance allows for a deeper analysis of the subtle contributions of detector characteristics such as gain, sensitivity, and noise to the SNR in various conditions.

This webinar will review the basics of signal-to-noise ratio calculation, the differences and similarities between different equations for SNR.  It will discuss the factors that affect SNR, the sources of noise, and understand how the applications’ conditions determine the key detector characteristics.  It will also examine some techniques to reduce noise, and further increase SNR.

The landscape of the world has significantly changed in the past few months. Whether it is a business, university or teachers and students, many people have been forced to work, learn, and interact remotely.

Proper remote, access control and Work-From-Home policies are critical to protect sensitive, proprietary, and private data. With ever-increasing cyber threats, IT policies have become a necessary component in all organizations. The difficulty of creating a proper IT policy and the sheer number of standards, controls, processes, and policies – it can become dizzying to try to build one from scratch.

Technology can play a big role in helping organizations navigate the various standards to build a policy that helps mitigate risks.

In this webcast, Leslie Weinstein will discuss how to automate the building and maintenance of compliance policies for the small to medium sized business (SMB) market, fostering security across the entire supply chain.
