NEATT - Message from conference chair


As conference chairman, I am proud to welcome you to the 77th Annual New England Association of Technology Teachers Conference being held at Johnson and Wales University in Providence, Rhode Island on November 14th & 15th.  This year we are inviting Science and Math Teachers to join us.  With that in mind the Conference Committee is offering a wide variety of STEM related workshops that will be helpful and interesting for all.  The conference theme, "TECHNOLOGY AND ENGINEERING - BRINGING THE SKILLS TO SCIENCE AND MATH (STEM)", dictates that the committee offers a variety of workshops and activities that will be helpful and informative to all Science, Math and Technology teachers elementary to high school.  After attending the NEATT conference you will return to your classroom with a renewed vision of STEM for your students.


Our keynote speaker started his career as an industrial arts teacher, Mr. Fay Butler, is the owner of Fay Butler Fab/Metal Shaping in Wheelwright Massachusetts. He is dedicated to the education of craftsmen through material science. One of his areas of expertise is the subject of creating compound curves through stretching and shrinking of metal.  Fay uses the science behind the material and breaks this procedure down to the atomic level.  He is a huge advocate of Technology, Math, and Science education, serving the aircraft, automotive, architectural, and art industries from early development concepts to reproduction of production parts.  We are sure you will enjoy his remarks.


Johnson and Wales University and the great city of Providence have a lot to offer and hopefully you will make time to enjoy the historical architecture, museums, theaters, as well as the Providence Place Mall and Waterplace Park.  Providence is known for its excellent restaurants and dining experiences, many located in the Federal Hill section of Providence and not far from the JWU campus.


I would like to thank Mr. Gerry Florio and my committee for all their help, without some assistance, this could not happen.


Enjoy!
