National Engineers' Week

In observation of National Engineers Week, The Washington Post ran a story in its "KidsPost" section on Nate Ball, host of PBS's Design Squad and keynote speaker at ITEA's upcoming conference in Louisville. 

It's a great piece - designed to pique kids' interest in engineering and its practical applications. My seven-year-old daughter read it without me even having to ask her. (She was also pretty excited that I would get to see Nate use his "rapid ascender" in Louisville).

More Ways to Connect

The advent of sites for social and professional networking have really opened a door for those who share common goals, such as ITEA members. ITEA created several groups on Facebook about a year ago that have steadily grown in membership. About a week ago, we created a group on LinkedIn as well. We believe that it's important to have a presence where our people are - and they certainly seem to be on LinkedIn - looking for ways to network. 

If you're not already a member of LinkedIn, I would strongly encourage you to join - it's easy and free and you'll immediately have access to potential networking opportunities with literally thousands of professional educators.

The link, once you've joined, is
The name of the group is "ITEA Educators." 

Get busy networking!
