In May 2022, the National CyberWatch Center announced the reformulation of the annual Community College Cyber Summit to become one of several symposia within multiple regional and a national Cybersecurity Capabilities and Career Symposia (3CS). The 3CS expansion, eventually to all 10 Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) regions, will provide many more opportunities for attendees by addressing a significant impediment to participation in vital capacity building programs - the cost and time commitment for travel to the conference location.

The 2023 State Leadership and Skills Conference (SLSC23) is the premier CTE event in the state of Florida. The top students in over 100 different skill and leadership competitions gather to compete against their peers for a chance to advance to the National Leadership and Skills Conference. These competitions provide an opportunity for students to hone their technical skills, connect with business and industry, and become world-class workers, leaders, and responsible American citizens.

In addition to competitions, students are invited to participate in other conference activities to further their careers and connect them with potential future employers. The Meet the Employer Career Fair, where more than 50 local, state, and national companies are looking to recruit and hire students for immediate job openings. The CONNECTED Expo and Trade Show showcases business and industry partners and their products, services, and career opportunities. 

This workshop will cover how to use videos of classroom projects and student success stories. 

  • Asking students to create video projects is a great tool and has a huge impact in making students feel that they are participating in their learning journey. 
  • Creating videos of employers or former students talking about their work and why their education is useful in their current position is another very motivational tool. 

These success stories can also be shown to prospective students to learn about the programs being offered. Real-world examples will be included.

The National Cybersecurity Training and Education (NCyTE) Center is featuring Zackary Nicklin from the National Center of Autonomous Technologies (NCAT) at this month's membership meeting. Zackary will deliver a primer on autonomous systems, in multiple domains such as air, land and sea, and the critical role cybersecurity plays in their operations. With the speed of adoption of these systems, they are becoming ubiquitous in everyday life, for many of us. As we adopt more of this technology for uses such as package delivery, search and rescue, inspection and Advanced Air Mobility, safekeeping of the command-and-control links and the outputs produced becomes more and more of a priority.

In daily lives, there are many applications relying on electrochemistry, a branch of chemistry that deals with interconversion of chemical energy and electrical energy. For example, batteries convert stored chemical energy into electrical energy inside devices like smartphones. Electrocatalysts are types of chemicals which can increase the speed, efficiency and selectivity of electrochemical reactions that happen on electrode surfaces. Nanomaterials are especially excellent electrocatalysts due to larger number of reactive atoms on the surfaces compared to those on bulk materials as well as their flexibility for post-processing. On the other hand, the role of electrocatalysts play during electrochemical reactions is difficult to interpret because of the complexity of nanomaterial itself as well as chemical reactions that happen at the interface of solid electrodes and liquid electrolytes.

The aim of the talk is to introduce a state-of-the-art spectroscopic technique based on infrared spectroscopy that can be used to characterize the chemical species adsorbed on the electrode surfaces and provide ample information about the changes in the structures of adsorbed species under different conditions.

This webinar will cover Community College and Industry Partnerships and how to effectively use these to foster a Strategic Workforce Collaboration.

This NSF supported CCSF-UCSF collaboration is inviting biotech-bioscience community college students, alumni and faculty/staff to join online workshops developed for community college bioscience-biotech students and provide input/feedback to help adapt them to a broader audience. 

Goal of the Workforce Navigation Training: Provide students/trainees with the knowledge, skills, support and clarity they need to effectively assess and successfully navigate any lab environment and achieve their professional and career goals.

Go beyond focusing solely on presenting yourself as the optimal candidate and utilize the interview to determine if an internship/job opportunity is a “Good Fit” for you! In this workshop gain strategies to clarify your career and educational goals and frame questions to obtain accurate information to assess if a workplace will support those goals, while also learning to recognize potential misalignments.

Learning outcomes:

  • Define what a ‘bad fit' or 'toxic work environment’ is
  • Outline and clarify your own goals before the interview
  • Use questions during an interview to determine whether a workplace is in alignment with your goals and values
  • Articulate strategies and practice language to frame questions
  • Describe examples of verbal and non-verbal red flags indicating the opportunity may not be a “Good Fit”
  • Describe factors that can make it difficult to recognize and weigh the potential impact of red flags during and after an interview
