2012 Industry Board Executive Summary
We had a very productive IAB meeting in March 2012. This was a great group of industry representatives who provide us with excellent input. Here we provide you with an executive summary of what transpired.
Crystallography Applied to MEMS - Oklahoma Career Tech Conference
Crystallography Workshop - Oklahoma 2012 Career Tech - Summer Conference - STEM Division Friday, August 3
Presentor: Matthias W. Pleil, SCME PI
This workshop will provide you, the STEM educator, with a hands-on approach to teaching crystallorgraphy and you will be equipped to teach how it applies to the making of your students' hign tech electronic gadgets and a future career in the Microsystems industry! Each participant will interact with three classroom activities and be provided with a set of materials and resources including instrutor and student guides, animations and hands-on classroom materials. You and your student will never look at a crystal in the same way!
Participants are encouraged to create an account on the SCME website and log in to get access to all our instructor educational materials.
SCME now on YouTube
Newsflash: SCME now has a YouTube Channel - check out our animations and short lectures - we will be adding to this selection - use them to learn more about Microsystems applications and fabrication! http://www.youtube.com/user/SCME2012
