Dear Pre-College Engineering Education (PCEE) Division Members,

 

I probably do not need to remind those of you whose abstracts were accepted to the annual conference that paper drafts are due in less than a month and specifically by February 1st. Also, conference housing and registration opened up just a few days ago. Click here for more information about the conference (New Orleans, June 26-29).

 

Another deadline that is fast approaching: proposals for the 13th K-12 ASEE Annual Teachers Workshop are due February 4th. Click here for more information about the workshop(New Orleans, June 25).

 

You may also be interested in submitting a proposal for the upcoming NSTA STEM Forum and Expo (Denver, July 27-29). Proposals are due January 15th. Click here to learn more about that.
