2014 Great Presentation Topics

Jim-Flowers-on-Rapid-Prototyping

Jim Flowers presents on rapid prototyping

The Technology Fall Conference always has a variety of topic presentations and hands-on double-session workshops. Here is a great presentation topic and abstract that just came in this week:

Experimenting with Rapid Prototyping and Something Called Custom Intersections
Sure, 3D printers and laser cutters can make product prototypes, but they can also help students engage in original experimentation. See how students and teachers take an experimental approach and push the limits of the hardware. A special project called custom intersections will also be demonstrated, with free models given to the first 60 attendees.

Here are just a few of the topics that you will see when you visit the conference this year:

  • Wind Turbines meet the Grid (double session workshop)
  • Introduction to Biomedical Engineering
  • Junior Solar Sprint Makes STEM Fun
  • The Next Wave of 3D Printing & Advanced Manufacturing
  • High School Robotics for College Credit
  • Connecting, Collaborating, Critical Thinking, Creating, and Curating – Creating a STEM Community
  • Want Your Title in the Program – we are still accepting presentation proposals.

The conference is a friendly place to present and accepts a wide range of topics related to technology, engineering, and STEM education. The Technology Conference Program routinely has 50+ topics, which can be viewed in our program archive.
