We recently had the pleasure to attend a few local technology education trade shows as an exhibitor. Both, the NYSETA (New York State Engineering Technology Association) at Erie Community College in Buffalo, and the NYSTEEA (New York State Technology and Engineering Educator’s Association) at SUNY Oswego were opportunities to meet with our customers face-to-face and introduce ourselves to new contacts. Studica has supported these fine organizations since 1997, when our business was in its initial stages.
For those who are unfamiliar, NYSETA is a professional organization representing the faculty and higher education institutions in New York State who teach engineering technology and technology. They also serve to provide individuals with information on careers in technology, school information, and links to educational information for technology. Engineering career information through NYSETA can be found at their website, http://nyseta.org/nyseta_003.htm. NYSTEEA (formerly NYSTEA) is the professional association of Technology Education teachers for K-12. Their members work to ensure the technological literacy of New York State students. NYSTEEA creates and encourages opportunities for professional development and collaboration of Technology teachers.
Studica has provided support, service and training for Autodesk software to the member schools and faculty for many years. A recent initiative by Autodesk to create an immersive, project-based curriculum to integrate science, technology, engineering, art and math (STEAM) into classroom learning is ideal for schools in these associations. The Digital STEAM Workshop was discussed and highlighted amongst teachers and faculty at these recent trade shows.
It was great to see so many people in the past few weeks at these shows. We appreciate your business and look forward to our continued support of your excellent associations in the future.
