This month, Studica and fischertechnik will be appearing at two important national conferences, both of which are focused on improving STEM education. The first is the U.S. News STEM Solutions National Conference in Austin, Texas, which started Monday and runs until Wednesday, June 19th. What is STEM Education?

US News STEM Solutions National Conference

US News STEM Solutions National ConferenceIn only the second year, this is a gathering that brings together education leaders from across the educational community, as well as from business and the government sector, all for the purpose of determining ways in which the US can increase STEM literacy and preparedness. A series of eight different conference tracks will be focused on discussing the changes that must be made in areas such as education, public policy, and workforce development. Studica will be at booth #411 in the exhibit hall, showcasing the new fischertechnik STEM Lab Program for middle and high schools. In attendance are Jeff Mazzone, Studica’s General Manager of US operations, as well as Lance Zurek, the Product Manager for the fischertechnik Division. Joining them will be program creator, and well known STEM educator, Tom White, who will provide an overview of the standards-focused, project-based curriculum that accompanies these labs. On display will be numerous fischertechnik models, as well as a selection of Mini Systems made for use with the National Instruments myDAQ unit and LabVIEW software.

Next week, Studica will be exhibiting at the American Society for Engineering Education (ASEE) conference in Atlanta, Georgia. The event, which runs from Sunday, June 23rd through Wednesday, June 26th, is focused on enhancing teaching methods and exchanging ideas in engineering and technology education. Once again, Studica will be showcasing the fischertechnik STEM Lab Program, as well as fischertechnik’s pre-built training and simulation models, and the National Instruments myDAQ and Mini System add-ons. If you’re in Atlanta for the conference, please come visit Studica’s President, Frank Nanfara, and Global Manager Derek Murphy at booth 750, right across from the ASEE Bistro.
