Opening Night Community Activity
Get ready to better know your TEECAeast community — and the community of our new host town, Rehoboth Beach. This activity immediately follows the Technology Challenge, and is mandatory for all students. This is a rain-or-shine event and will take place outdoors, so plan and dress accordingly. You will receive your conference tshirt along the way, and will be in the running for other great prizes! Bring your great attitude and your quick wits. Here’s what else you need to come prepared with: a device capable of providing your GPS coordinates (search your phone app store — download and test ahead of time), a pencil, and a small notebook that you can fit in your pocket.
Come visit with representatives from regional school districts. Be sure you’ve practiced your “elevator speech” about why you’re the next great teacher hire, and bring some copies of your resume. Schools and districts who wish to participate in the Career Fair should register by Oct. 19. Questions can be directed to Dr. Tanner Huffman, who is organizing the event. There is not cost to participate as a recruiter at the Career Fair. If Career Fair partipants want to stay overnight or join in the Formal Baquet or Awards Ceremony Luncheon, they can find more information on the Registration page.
For Both Students and Advisers
The STEM Showcase has arrived at TEECA East! This non-competitive event gives you the perfect venue to show off and share all the great curricular materials, research posters, design project docs, and other STEM stuff you’ve been working on! A space will be set aside to put all these items on display during the conference. Faculty and grad students are also welcome to submit materials. Read more details and sign up to participate here. Entries are due Friday, October 12th by midnight.
The TEECAeast Formal Banquet and keynote address, will be held on Friday, November 9. All conference attendees participate in this important tradition. The dresscode for the banquet is formal professional businesswear.
Awards Ceremony Luncheon
On Saturday, November 10, we will conclude our conference with the Awards Ceremony Luncheon. Winners of the various competitive events will be announced and recognized at this luncheon. Students are encouraged to wear departmental apparal.
Welcome Back Discussion for Advisers
We encourage groups to plan their arrival and check-in early enough that faculty advisers can join one another on Friday evening for a social get-together and professional discussion, between 5:00–6:30 PM. This event is being coordinated by Dr. Steve O’Brien, and more details will be forthcoming.
TEECAeast Advisers Meeting
On Friday, November 9, faculty advisers will meet during the lunch break to discuss TEECAeast organizational business relating to the 2018 conference, as well as to make plans for the 2019 conference.
