ATE Events — August 2021

Past

Do you feel out of your depth when teaching industry-specific topics like Quality, GMPs, cGLPs, or Documentation?

Biotility has a series of short courses in August that can help. With over 15 years of experience, many industry-based instructors, and a nationwide industry advisory board, Biotility can help you overcome the imposter syndrome and feel more comfortable teaching the material your students need to know.

Course Information and Dates:

  • August 2nd, 8:30 am - 12:30 pm ET - Teaching Good Laboratory Practices (GLP) as a Workplace Skill
  • August 4th, 8:30 am - 12:30 pm ET - Teaching Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) as a Workplace Skill
  • August 9th, 8:30 am - 12:30 pm ET - Instilling Documentation Etiquette for the Future Bioscience Industry Workforce
  • August 11th, 8:30 am - 12:30 pm ET - Using CAPA to Transform Laboratory Errors into Real-World Scenarios

This in person, hands-on, Arduino Microcontrollers Workshop will provide participants with basic microcontroller theory and operation, hands-on laboratory activities, and a review of Arduino curriculum. Participants will learn how to write and modify code for Arduinos, interface sensors and output devices, and build, test, and troubleshoot circuits. Each participant will receive a “Sparkfun Inventor’s Kit” (valued at $110) and a $500 stipend. This workshop is co-sponsored by the Micro Nano Technology Education Center (NSF DUE #2000281).

Educators at all levels desire for their students to succeed. For Community College educators teaching technical education course success is often defined as “graduates getting jobs”. Achievement of this goal is often tied to having a direct correlation between the student outcomes from the courses in the program and the industry requirements for new hires at a technician level. Industry participation in CC technical education programs is critical to ensure this correlation and also provide students with insight into the career environment and the myriad of opportunities available.

This workshop will focus on a three-step process that educators can follow to prepare them to:

  1. successfully execute the initial contact with industry
  2. be prepared for a “face to face” meeting with an industry person and
  3. invite participation of the industry/company as a supporting participant in the technician program.

During the workshop the participants will walk through the process for their particular technical education program and industry segment. Workshop results will be a checklist of items to complete and various suggestions as well as the first draft of the content that will go on a “blank sheet of paper”.

Northland Aerospace13892 Airport DrThief River FallsMN56701United States

This course will give educators the opportunity to assemble, calibrate, and experiment with the ELEV-8 v4 Quadcopter, a small unmanned aerial vehicle purpose-built for education. Participants will assemble a quadcopter and learn about each of its components, its composition, and its function. Participants will then learn safety, legal, and ethical considerations regarding unmanned aerial vehicles.

Instructors will introduce the Ryze Tello STEM drone and participants will learn how to interface via mobile application and traditional controller. The course will teach the basics of block coding and how the Tello can be programmed for autonomous flight. You will get a chance to practice flying the Tello's in a controlled environment using the flying and coding skills acquired throughout this camp. Lastly, this course will teach participants about possible application-specific modifications that can be made to the Tello using 3D print technology and how it can be used as a tool for student competitions.

Minnesota State Community and Technical College, Detroit Lakes Campus900 Highway 34 EDetroit LakesMinnesota56501

Specifically designed for Ag and Tech-Ed teachers, this three-day workshop will include training to support instructors in teaching skills to secondary students in the areas of Small Gas Engines, Drone Technology, and Welding. Attendees will receive training from college faculty/subject matter experts and hands-on experience with equipment needed to teach secondary students. This workshop will hopefully compliment other MDE and MAAE workshops! Training is designed to meet attendees at their skill level and create long-lasting professional relationships with colleagues and subject matter experts. This workshop is for secondary school educators, from experienced teachers looking for continuing education, to new teachers, to those simply curious about starting a small gas engines, drones, or welding experience at school.

Attendees will receive the following:

  • 24 Continuing Education Credits (CEU): Clock hour certificates available upon completion of the workshop
  • Access to classroom "tool kits" including guided activities and coursework for teachers and students alike to further explore and experience Small Gas Engines, Drone Technology, and Welding
  • A small gas engine to use during the workshop and to keep afterwards
  • Career exploration resources for students
  • Ongoing invitation to communicate with trainers throughout the school year

Renaissance Long Beach Hotel111 E Ocean BlvdLong BeachCA90802U.S.

Welcome to the Electric Vehicles Battery Tech USA Exhibition and Conference where electric vehicle battery technology innovators will meet with leading automotive manufacturers to explore new battery technologies and battery management systems for use in next-generation electric vehicles and hybrid electric vehicles.

The Cybersecurity Competency Work Group is developing tools to help CAE institutions identify pathways and test competencies to prepare students for the workforce. These tools will help students to visualize career goals, develop skills to fit those positions, and provide the means to measure and demonstrate preparedness. Join presenter, Zoe Fowler, for an overview and demonstration of these tools.

EvaluATE webchats are an opportunity for small groups of ATE evaluation community members to come together to share and learn from each other in real-time. Anyone interested in evaluation is welcome to attend. Participants are encouraged to turn on their webcams and join in the conversation, offering a great opportunity to network.

NCyTE Center will present a 2-day virtual workshop on CMMC requirements for full-time college faculty and small business IT personnel. This CMMC Workshop will provides an overview of how to prepare for future certification, including its requirements, impact and importance for contractors working with the DoD. Funded by a grant from the National Science Foundation, the course is free.

In this 60-minute Webinar, an automotive testing expert will explain what is needed to test a battery in addition to cycling. Wiring and fluid testing, for example, can be done separately or in combination with charging and discharging. The expert will also walk you through the latest testing requirements, procedures, and best practices in areas of battery testing you may not have considered.

These include:

  • Multi-axis simulation testing, real-time durability / road load data acquisition (RLDA)
  • Cooling systems, thermal management, pressure
  • Enclosure testing: dust, spray, and chamber work
  • Environmental testing: salt spray, humidity, and chamber work such as thermal shock, high temperature and humidity, and more

The presentation offers a comprehensive view of today’s requirements in battery testing as well as how it interacts with testing routines across the vehicle.

Biotech-Careers.org is a comprehensive career information resource, used in college and high school classrooms throughout the USA. It combines education materials and job search capabilities with an extensive employer database. They will demonstrate paths for exploring Biotech-Careers.org that focus on people (alumni profiles, videos), places (100’s of interactive maps), and things (topics in biotech and company key words). Together, these resources show the value of learning biology and help students identify potential careers.
