If you haven't heard already, the Satellite Network has expanded beyond the Western Pennsylvania and West Virginia region to include CREATE Lab Satellites in Atlanta and Utah.
With great support from the Infosys Foundation USA, CREATE Lab has established partners in both areas to provide educators with tools and training to help their students learn about technology and adapt it to their individual and community needs.
The new satellites made their first visit this summer to begin exploring technology and develop ways of implementation.
The visit went great! Just ask our new partners...
Alisa Petersen of Southern Utah University - "I felt honored to visit the CREATE Lab. My visit gave me a much clearer understanding of the Lab and its purpose. Seeing how Satellite partners at multiple universities are using the CREATE technologies in diverse ways within their K-12 networks helped me understand how well this project will fit into SUU's existing programs and partnerships. I am looking forward to sharing these technologies with educators and children here in Utah."
Tamara Pearson of Georgia Tech's CEISMC - "I truly enjoyed learning more about the vision and possibilities that exist within the satellite network. Meeting the other partners, hearing about the exciting tools, and engaging in rich and meaningful discussions left me inspired to develop ways to engage youth in Atlanta in technology for social good."
Lizanne Destefano of Georgia Tech and CEISMC - "Wonderful to recognize that we are part of a vibrant, diverse network."
Ray Whittier of Cedar North Elementary in Utah - "We enjoyed two inspiring days at CMU that helped us to see the possibilities of what we can do with CREATE Lab products. We flew home with confidence and creativity--ready to implement!"
Tami Goetz of Utah STEM Action Center - "The ability to see the projects in action, in the schools with kids and teachers, was fantastic! Talking to the CREATE Lab team helped me to not only see how we can implement their projects in Utah, but I see numerous other opportunities to collaborate with them."
Bill Heyborne of SUU Center for STEM Teaching and Learning - "What a great experience getting to meet the CREATE Lab Network team! At a time when there seems to be so much wrong with education in this country, uniting with this group to talk about something so fun, fresh and engaging, gave me renewed hope for finding solutions to some of our toughest educational problems."
