K-12 Posters Papers

Posters by K-12 students may feature student STEaM educational or research experiences.  Submit an abstract  describing the content of your poster (max. 500 words) for review.  Once accepted, students have the option of submitting an additional short paper for inclusion in conference proceedings.  Note that this paper is optional and NOT required. Posters will be judged for poster awards based on novelty, usefulness, completeness, and poster presentation by organizing committee, keynote speakers, and paper/workshop presenters. All authors of accepted posters should submit a PDF file, within a week of acceptance, of the posters in order to be included in the Xplore database. Posters should be in vertical (portrait) format and the dimensions should be 2 x 3 (24 inches x 36 inches) The size specification must be strictly adhered to. Choose font sizes which people can read from a few feet away. Posters should be mounted at the beginning of the day and be removed at the end of the last session. Any poster left behind will be discarded. The conference will supply materials for mounting posters on assigned poster boards. Author and/or co-author of the poster should be stationed by his/her poster during the poster session to engage the audience in technical discussion by presentations and answering questions. Authors of posters should interact with keynote speakers, paper/workshop presenters, and attendees to encourage visit to their posters. Authors may bring additional battery-operated audio/visual aids to enhance the presentation.

We welcome interactive and/or hands-on workshop proposals relevant to our conference as well as audience. We are particularly interested in activities and tools/technologies that promote integration of engineering design, problem-solving, or the concept of "making".

The workshop proposal should include, (1) workshop title, (2) name, affiliation, and expertise of each presenter, (3) contact information of the lead presenter, (3) learning objective(s), (4) target audience, and (5) an overview  of the workshop, and should be submitted to the workshop track on EDAS (no more than 750 words).  See submission link above.
