SCME at HI TEC 2011 - Success!

The HI TEC conference held in San Francisco was a great success!  As an Executive Producer, SCME provided 25 conference passes to educators, brought in about a dozen partners as well as giving a 1/2 day pre-conference workshop, three presentations and manned a booth at the showcase.  The display and presentation of our hands-on kits were a hit as well!  Click "Read More" to see the presentations!

The pre-conference workshop was presented by Matthias Pleil with Barbara Lopez with assistance from Smokey Trujillo, Adrian Sebborn - two of the best high school teachers in the country, Fabian Lopez - the founder of the MEMS program at CNM, and Jim Hyder, SCME's Industry Liaison and Synergy Coach.  David Hata participated as our external evaluator and photographer.
