Baltimore’s Inner Harbor561 Light St.BaltimoreMD21202United States

Providing access and equity for all PreK-12 students to become technologically and engineering literate through high-quality STEM instruction is imperative. Students who study technology and engineering through an integrative STEM education approach learn about the technological world that inventors, engineers, and other innovators have created. The goal is to produce students with a more conceptual understanding of technology and engineering and its place in society. These students must conceptualize and evaluate new technologies that they may have never before seen. By “doing and making,” children become “makers” for the future.

The National Science Foundation's (NSF) Advanced Technological Education (ATE) program grant proposal writing process can seem daunting to those new to the ATE program. Each year, Mentor-Connect offers a detailed cost-free technical assistance webinar highlighting all aspects of the budget and budget justification for those building competitive grant proposals for ATE. 

The purpose of this webinar is to help those who have not been funded by NSF to develop fundable proposals.  Webinar Participants will learn:

  • how to prepare a budget for their NSF ATE grant
  • what to include in each budget category
  • how to prepare a budget justification
  • how to align the budget and project description
  • how to avoid common errors

Formed in 1998, SEMATA's founding principle is to create an environment that fosters communication and training among automotive teachers in southeastern Michigan. In 2018, SEMATA expanded to cover all of Michigan under the name MATA - Michigan Automotive Teachers Association. The organization holds two conferences each year, in the fall the conference is held in southeast Michigan, in the spring it is held elsewhere in Michigan. Each conference includes technical training, compliant with NATEF requirements, along with a tool and equipment show, to help keep our instructors current with the latest technical material.

The conference will include:

  • Industry updates
  • Technical training classes
  • Trade show
  • Live technical demonstrations
  • Networking opportunities 
  • Raffles

This workshop will inspire and inform your work with students, whether you are an administrator, faculty member, or other higher education staff. Through a combination of interactive lecture and practical analysis, you will leave this workshop with the skills and knowledge needed to become a brain-based educator. Be warned, once you put on your brain-based glasses, the world will never look the same!

For many of us in education, accessibility guidelines can be confusing. Fortunately, they can be distilled into four core principles, as captured by the acronym POUR (Perceivable, Operable, Understandable and Robust).  Many of the learning materials educators use in classrooms and labs are self-created and understanding how to make them accessible to all students including those with disabilities is critical. Experts from the National AEM Center at CAST, in collaboration with the NSF funded ATE Central project,  will offer practical, applied techniques that educators can implement right away. Instructors can build upon their higher-level understanding of the POUR core qualities to ensure their classroom materials “are accessible and work for all learners from the start, by design.”
