Spring conference season is almost upon me! Every year in March for the past few years, I have been able to attend two great conferences.

I’ve been attending the International Technology and Engineering Educators Association (ITEEA) National Conference since 2008, when it was held in Salt Lake City, UT. You can see photos from past conferences and read about some of my experiences here: Make Magazine’s blog entry about my 2008 experience, my 2009 conference photos, my 2010 conference photos, and the writeups I did for MTEEA in 2011.

This year’s conference is in Columbus, OH. As I did last year, I will be volunteering at the ITEEA Publications booth, helping out ITEEA’s fabulous editor Katie De La Paz and her wonderful crew. I’m definitely looking forward to it!

Also, I’m really looking forward to the 2013 MACUL conference later in March. This year’s conference is in Detroit, Michigan again. I spent many years working downtown, so a chance to get back down and interact with my colleagues is always welcome.
