We’d love for you to check out the MNT-EC LinkedIn post about the TechConnect World Innovation Conference & Expo 2024: 🔬 We wanted to call out two posts — this one from Jin Ellington and another from Rea Joshi.

If you want to catch the vibe from DC and TechConnect 2024 — check both out.

Last week’s TechConnect World Innovation Conference & Expo 2024 in Washington D.C. offered an excellent forum for discussions at the intersection of semiconductor technology and education. Center Director, Jared Ashcroft was there with a large contingent of MNT-EC students and colleagues. Thank you to everyone who was there and supported the students and each other.


Two upcoming webinars hosted by EvaluATE:

The first webinar, titled “Evaluation Basics for Non-Evaluators: Understanding the Basics and Benefits of Evaluation,” is scheduled for June 26 at 1 p.m. EST. 

The second webinar, titled “Strategies and Insights into Evaluation Plans for NSF ATE Proposals,” is scheduled for July 24 at 1 p.m. EST.

This webinar is specifically designed for non-evaluators and individuals interested in submitting a proposal to the NSF ATE program. The two-part webinar series aims to provide a comprehensive overview of evaluation and its significance in the context of grant applications and project implementation. Participants will receive practical tips on how to integrate evaluation into their NSF ATE proposal.

Here are some key topics that will be covered in the webinar:

  • An introduction to evaluation – understanding what evaluation is and why it is crucial for your project’s success.
  • Budgeting for evaluation – gaining insights into the costs associated with evaluation and how to allocate resources effectively.
  • Finding the right evaluator – exploring strategies for identifying and selecting an evaluator that aligns with your project’s needs.
  • Evaluation requirements for NSF ATE proposals
