New Flash: NSDL is the Nation's online library for education and research in
Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics. Learned about this in one of Mike's (MATEC's) webinar! Great Stuff!
SCME will be presenting a two-part workshop and presenting our wares at MATEd's NEW Conference being held at Ivy Tech in Fort Wayne Indiana. We encourage all attending to come by our showcase booth and attend the workshop. See the Schedule at a Glance on the Conference Website. The SCME Workshop is entitled "Building a Micro Pressure Sensor in the STEM Classroom"

This is a series of articles we have put together over the years which highlight the Microsystems (MEMS) skill sets, knowledge, job opportunities and industry needs for 2yr Micro/Nano graduates. This article will be added to from time to time and is intended to bring together a story as to why a college would want to consider integrating Microsystems curriculum (our Learning Modules and kits) into their STEM courses and even conisder offering courses and a program in Microsystems.
SCME Industry Survey - Poster Presentation - Analysis summary of 68 MEMS, Semiconductors and Capital Equipment/Support companies showing significant technician hiring and new position creation across the nation.
WorkKeys Job Profile Report - MEMS Technician - David Licht and Matthias Pleil - we did this job profile to better understand exactly what a MEMS technician does in the cleanroom. This was done using the WorkKeys system of in depth job profiling.
Knowledge and Skills Needed by MEMS Technologists as Ascertained by Industry Survey and Job Profiling - Matthias Pleil - this presentation was give at the 2007 NSF ATE PI conference in Washington DC - Keeping Programs Viable and Sustainable.
Needs Assessment for the CNM Small Tech (MEMS) Program - Matthias Pleil - This 2008 report is still applicable today. It shows a regional need for MEMS/Microsystems skilled technicians.
We had a very productive IAB meeting in March 2012. This was a great group of industry representatives who provide us with excellent input. Here we provide you with an executive summary of what transpired.
Crystallography Workshop - Oklahoma 2012 Career Tech - Summer Conference - STEM Division Friday, August 3
Presentor: Matthias W. Pleil, SCME PI
This workshop will provide you, the STEM educator, with a hands-on approach to teaching crystallorgraphy and you will be equipped to teach how it applies to the making of your students' hign tech electronic gadgets and a future career in the Microsystems industry! Each participant will interact with three classroom activities and be provided with a set of materials and resources including instrutor and student guides, animations and hands-on classroom materials. You and your student will never look at a crystal in the same way!
Participants are encouraged to create an account on the SCME website and log in to get access to all our instructor educational materials.
Newsflash: SCME now has a YouTube Channel - check out our animations and short lectures - we will be adding to this selection - use them to learn more about Microsystems applications and fabrication! http://www.youtube.com/user/SCME2012
