STEM Best Practices Conference

Dr. Suzy Cox and Dr. Bill Heyborne recently presented on the CREATE Satellite Network at the Utah STEM Best Practices Conference held June 20th in Provo, Utah. Their session, attended by approximately 60 teachers and other STEM professionals, introduced the work of the CREATE Lab and described the opportunities, for Utah teachers, available through the satellite partners at Utah Valley University and Southern Utah University. Four projects were highlighted, including Giga Pan, Message From Me, Finch, and Arts and Bots. The teachers were enthusiastic about the potential for the projects in their classrooms and asked a host of insightful questions. In addition to leading a session, Dr. Cox and Dr. Heyborne also staffed a both in the vendor area of the conference. Here they were able to demonstrate the four projects, share information, allow teachers, and other interested parties, to ask questions about the network, and have some fun playing with the technology.
