ATE Central

ATE Events — October 2020


Instructors: Jon Beck, Chris Hadfield, Zackary Nicklin, Ben Richason, Jill Zande, National Center for Autonomous Technologies

This workshop is designed to deliver a primer on the sensor technologies that are impacting the aerospace, automotive, heavy equipment and marine autonomous technologies industries. Educators from these disciplines face many challenges from the rapid integration and prohibitive financial nature of these technologies. Jobs of the future will require a foundational level of knowledge of these sensors. Through hands-on experience and discussion, we will cover industry trends and the future impact of advanced technology integration resulting from autonomous technologies. Attendees will be prepared to use this technology in their classroom using portable, cost efficient experimentation and exercises.

The Mid-Atlantic ESA annual meeting brings together students, researchers, teachers and practitioners from the Mid–Atlantic region and beyond. The theme of the meeting is the ecology of the BosWash Megalopolis. The meeting offers an excellent opportunity for both undergraduate and graduate ecology students to present their research in all ecology-related topics. Undergraduate students, graduate students, faculty and professionals are all welcome.

If you have registered for the meeting: Contact Danielle Slatkin at to request a refund or to express that you wish to have your registration continue for the rescheduled meeting in October.

If you submitted an abstract for the meeting: Contact Vince D’Amico at to request it be withdrawn or to carry forward for the rescheduled meeting in October.

During this workshop, participants explore ways to build students’ innovation mindsets and collaboration skills by integrating design-thinking techniques into the learning experience. Participants also learn how to enhance students’ creative habits through deep user empathy, radical collaboration, and rapid experimentation to problem solving. The workshop focuses on the most common step-by-step innovation framework faculty can apply to the creation of content, activities, and student services.

In recent years, we have seen a significant change in public attitudes in support of climate science and sustainability. At the same time, whether it is about food safety, endangered species or protection of waterways, we continue to see the latest science being pushed aside in public discourse. As we embark into a new decade, ensuring that ecology is relevant to all students is vital so that we can prepare all students to be ecology-literate.

The ecological sciences are well positioned to serve as bridges between research, life experiences, and societal needs. Join us to share and learn practical strategies in Pushing Past Barriers: Ecological Science for All.
