Palm Springs Convention Center277 N Avenida CaballerosPalm SpringsCA92262

Join your global developer community in Palm Springs, California, for the Esri Developer Summit (DevSummit)—an event designed to show you how to build cutting-edge apps using advanced mapping technology.

Laser welding is a common joining method that has been used for years in combustion engine car manufacturing. Electric vehicles introduce a new set of welding challenges, starting from the materials needed to weld, such as copper and aluminum. In addition, the weld requirements are challenging, with higher requirements for mechanical strength, electrical conductivity, sealing, and others. 

The dynamic beam laser (DBL) is a new laser technology that enables supreme control on the thermal gradient, melt pool dynamics, and microstructure. This 60-minute Webinar will look at the ways the DBL enables manufacturers to replace joining methods such as brazing with laser welding to improve efficiency and reduce carbon emissions. 
Topics include:

  • Features of the DBL
  • Case studies for welding of battery cooling plates and Al die-cast components.

A Q&A session will follow the technical presentation.

A workshop for Secondary and Post Secondary Educators new to Mechatronics and Smart Manufacturing

This hands-on workshop will introduce faculty, administrators, and counselors to an entry level Mechatronics course (Concepts of Electronics) taught to high school students at a distance in Nebraska and Minnesota. It is the first of 4 courses being designed to deliver to high school students. Attendees will learn best practices for delivering technical coursework online, assemble a trainer, and perform lab exercises designed for high school or college students.

All participants will take their finished trainer (valued over $300) home and be asked to create a lab with the trainer to share with other workshop attendees and the NCNGM and iMEC communities. A parts list and related curriculum will also be made available.

Teams from high schools and state/community colleges are encouraged to attend.

The workshop is FREE, lunch will be provided, and attendees will take their trainer home to use in their own classrooms.

Nanotechnology is called the “Next Industrial Revolution”. Biotechnology is called as “The Science of the Millennium”. When these two powerful disciplines blend into nanobiotechnology, one can only imagine the scope and opportunities that emerge. The industry has recognized the potential of this field and is already contributing several commercialized products generated using Nanobiotechnology. People use these products in their daily life, without realizing the nanobiotechnology connection. Despite the need, there is a severe deficiency of a nanobiotechnology trained workforce, and it is a matter of great concern. The origin for this concern lies in lack of awareness about the skills, education paths, and career options for nanobiotechnology in the K-12, as well as post-secondary education. Compounding the problem is the wide-spread myth that teaching nanotechnology is not possible without expensive instrumentation.

This webinar addresses this important matter. Dr. Pattarkine will share some strategies that enable low-cost, hands-on nanobiotechnology activities and projects that have been developed as a part of the workforce leadership activities undertaken through Capital Area Biotechnology Partnership (CABP) by the biotechnology program at Harrisburg University of Science and Technology (Harrisburg, PA).

This free workshop will provide students, trainees, and employees 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.

All Community College Students, Faculty, and Alumni are welcome to attend.

St. Cloud Technical and Community College1540 Northway Dr.St. CloudMN56303

This interactive farm transition program is focused on helping farm families dive deeper into conversations about

  • Family and business goals,
  • Job responsibilities,
  • Financial needs of farms and families,
  • Inheritance considerations, and
  • Mechanisms of transfer.

An emphasis of the sessions is how to transfer both the financial business and how to transfer the management and responsibility of the farm business. We provide time for hands-on planning and discussion for the farm family.

Heritage Center of Brooklyn Center6155 Earle Brown DriveBrooklyn CenterMN55430

This conference is for aviation maintenance technicians, IA's, industry employers, aviation vendors, students, and you! The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) will be onsite to validate your IA certification training.

This 60-minute webinar will examine advancements in processing thin, laminated stator and rotor stacks and take a detailed look at examples of power-dense and high-efficiency motors that use high-performance, soft magnetic alloys. Topics include:

  • How using high-induction, high-permeability, and low-loss soft magnetic stator and rotor materials can increase the torque and power density of the motor in combination with improved efficiency current approach and consequences. 
  • Various options for realizing the torque and power benefits by about 15-35% using these high-performance material solutions versus present technology.   
  • How these high-performance motors can result in improved electric vehicle performance such as higher acceleration, improved range, higher payload capacity, and increased space.  

A Q&A session will follow the technical presentation.

Florida A&M University1601 S Martin Luther King Jr BlvdTallahasseeFL32307

This conference proposes to take stock of the dramatic developments from the past two years to ask: Variants in Biology Education: What can we learn from pandemics?

Over the last two years, teaching and learning has grappled with the demands of change in response to the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic within a highly politicized landscape for which science is on the defense and misinformation is rampant. Never before have so many questions arisen about the implications for mainstream organismal biology education, and never before has the speed and scale of innovation been put into practice. The “pandemic” symbolizes change, resistance, immunity, adaptation, and opportunity at so many different levels – literally, in our personal lives, in education, and in mass culture. It compels us to consider the workforce needs of the future where pandemics are now ubiquitous among all living organisms: people, plants, and animals (domestic and wild).

This webinar will cover robots for AI and Industry 4.0.
