Virginia Children’s Engineering Convention 2017

Roanoke VA

Feb 9 - 10, 2017

The Virginia Children's Engineering Council (VCEC) annual conference is an opportunity for educators to learn and develop Children's Engineering activities for the classroom. Educators from across the region experience hands-on learning opportunies to enhance the education of their students and school programs. 

The Children's Engineering Convention has three major components: 1) staff development for K-5 teachers focusing on strategies that assist children to create, use and control technology, 2) teacher demonstrations of techniques for infusing design, engineering, and technology activities into the Standards of Learning, and 3) a showcase of technology-based educational resources. In addition to the special interest sessions/workshops, other opportunities will include educational vendor exhibits and keynote speakers during each general session.

Participants will experience engineering and technology-based activities that contribute to the development of technological awareness. Workshop highlights will focus on experiences that enable children to:
explore how people create, use, and control technology
apply knowledge in mathematics, science, English, and history and social sciences in solving problems associated with design, engineering and technology; and
use tools and materials to develop technological literacy and self-confidence.
Participants will receive ten (10) re-certification points for full participation in the convention, when the participants have prior approval from their school administration.

Details about break-out sessions may be found at: http://childrensengineering.org/convention/Presenters2017.pdf

VCEC is dedicated to developing design and technology instructional material, and providing local, regional and statewide inservice opportunities for educators at grades K-5. The inservice programs help teachers ensure that children develop an understanding of how to use, create, control, and assess technology. These instructional experiences are provided in a design, critical thinking, and problem solving context. They undergird attainment of selected Standards of Learning in English, mathematics, science, and history and social science.
