F1RST and Sundance Media Group announce the F1RST UAS Symposium to be held in Pasco County, Florida, focused on Public Safety applications for Unmanned Aircraft, bringing industry leaders to the facility with seminars, practical flight training, simulated scenarios, and live flight demonstrations of Unmanned Aircraft. The F1RST UAS Public Safety Symposium will feature demonstrations and training utilizing UAS in a variety of scenarios, taking advantage of F1RST’s rubble pile, vertical operations training, canine-UAS partnership, night flight with UAS, tactical operations utilizing UAS, and other learning experiences focused around real-world first responder and public safety engagements.

STELAR, the research center for the NSF ITEST program, would like to invite members of the ATE community to attend a webinar on June 2.

The ITEST program is particularly focused on workforce development and encouraging underserved and underrepreseted youth to pursue STEM careers; as such it is specifically interested in proposals from and partnerships with community colleges, minority serving institutions, and school districts. Visit STELAR.edc.org to learn more about the ITEST Program. 

ITEST is an applied research and development program with goals to advance the equitable and inclusive integration of technology in the learning and teaching of science, technology, engineering, or mathematics (STEM) from pre-kindergarten through high school. The program’s objective is to support all students’ acquisition of the foundational preparation in STEM disciplines. Preparation for the current and future workforce is increasingly dependent upon the application and use of technology and computing.

Proposed ITEST projects are expected to (1) engage students in technology-rich learning to develop disciplinary and/or transdisciplinary STEM content knowledge, including skills in data literacy and evidence-based decision-making and reasoning; (2) prioritize the full inclusion of groups who have been underrepresented and/or underserved, including but not limited to Blacks and African Americans, Alaska Natives, Hispanics and Latinos , Native Americans, Native Hawaiians, Native Pacific Islanders, persons with disabilities, neurodiverse students, and women in the STEM and information and communication technologies (ICT) workforce; (3) motivate students to pursue appropriate education pathways to technology-rich careers; and (4) leverage strategic and community partnerships to expand education pathways in communities through public and private partnerships and collaborations.

Automate is a showcase of automation, robotics, vision, motion control, and more. Attendees can explore the broadest range of products and technologies, and connect with industry leaders and innovators. This event runs from June 6th through 9th. On the last day, Automate 2022 will focus on career opportunities enabled by robotics and automation in automotive, warehousing and logistics, food and beverage, medical, construction, agriculture, retail, and other industries. Students are invited to tour the show to see all of the latest automation technologies on display.

GeoEd'22 will be held virtually from June 6 - June 10. This year, the format is a bit different than previous years. The team has shortened up the days and  have only one presentation or workshop happening at each time slot instead of having concurrent sessions so that you do not miss a thing. There is a number of presentations from you - the geospatial educator community! In addition to the exciting line-up of sessions, the event will have a Virtual Hallway that you can visit to catch up with new and old geo-friends. 

The CCIC is led by the American Association of Community Colleges (AACC) in partnership with the National Science Foundation (NSF). It is a national competition where community college student teams, working with a faculty or administrator mentor, use science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) to innovate solutions to real-world problems; participate in an Innovation Boot Camp; and compete for cash awards.

The Boot Camp provides professional development, mentoring, and coaching designed to build strategic communication and entrepreneurial skills to help students advance their innovations in both the private and public sectors. The event culminates in a poster session and engagement opportunity with STEM leaders and Congressional stakeholders, and a pitch presentation in front of a panel of industry and entrepreneurial professionals to determine the first, second, and third place winning teams.

CyberCamp is hosted by Bay Area Community Colleges. This summer camp will teach online hygiene and safety, technology ethics, infrastructure administration, security audits, cryptography, digital and network forensics, and web application exploitation. Ideal CyberCampers include 8th-12th graders and community college students with basic computers skills and little to no cybersecurity experience.

CyberCamp will be held June 13-17th in Santa Cruz, Diablo Valley College (2 locations), Monterey Peninsula College, Las Positas College, College of Marin, Ohlone College, and Contra Costa College.

This virtual institute is intended for STEM, high school, and community college educators. During the institute, participants will learn how solar photovoltaic power works, investigate career opportunities for students, explore CREATE's collection of ready-made solar classroom lessons, and develop a lesson plan to implement in the classroom. Five to six hours will be spent online with virtual instruction and five to six hours working offline with CREATE lessons and solar lab equipment.

Join the BEST Center's next webinar: Building Automation for a New Generation featuring Stacks+Joules. You'll learn about this organization's pioneering work in STEM engagement and educating high school teens and young adults. Presenters will include founders Mike Conway and Jon Spooner along with some recent graduates of their workforce training cohort.
