How to Create a Makerspace -- And Why Schools Need To
Makerspaces, fab labs, innovation stations-- whatever you call them, every student needs a place to brainstorm, collaborate and prototype with 21st century tools and materials. Such spaces promote mastery of new career, tech and science standards, but more importantly, prepare students for the modern workforce, a tech-based economy, and a productive and rewarding life. From no budget to half a million dollars; from a set of boxes in a media center corner, to a lab with 3D printers and laser cutters; we’ll experience what making means; plot out spaces; and discuss funding, tools, and enduring partnerships.

Embrace the Savings from Energy Efficiency and No-Cost Solar
Capturing energy savings enables districts to squeeze more out of tight budgets. Self-funding energy efficiency and the various methods to implement ESIP’s (energy saving improvement programs) and solar initiatives have helped districts offset operating costs for years. These opportunities are timelier than ever and can be undertaken simply and successfully. Session participants will learn how smart planning compounds available incentives and pays real benefits, how best to structure these improvements and how to avoid problems and pitfalls.

Energy Management Using Demand Response
This session is a very detailed, in-depth look at some of the best practices on how to make facilities more energy-efficient by claiming the low hanging fruit. In addition, the session will explain how your school district can then take those best practices and, using them in demand-response programs, create a steady revenue income to your district with no out-of-pocket expense. This will help your facilities become more energy-efficient, help lower your overall cost of operation, and allow your district to allocate money where it is needed most in the classroom.
