When:  Mar 1, 2024 from 09:30 AM to 04:00 PM (ET)
Associated with  FLATE Events

 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 Minnesota and Nebraska. 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 Advanced Technological Education (ATE) and Independent Mechatronics Education Curriculum (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.
