Page history last edited by teresa.potter@flate.org 6 months ago



FLATE Professional Development for technical faculty and educators in STEM curriculum provides opportunities to develop, refine or certify their knowledge base within manufacturing and/or its related enabling technologies and educational pedagogies. Workshops take advantage of the summer break for educators and are offered by request throughout the year to college faculty and K-12 teachers. Workshops included the annual FLATE Summer Institute, Annual FLATE Summer Camp for Teachers, and hands-on workshops featuring Robotics and automation, Additive Manufacturing, Alternative Energy, and recruiting girls to STEM careers.
