Industry and Educators Inspired to Create Great Students

The 2014 Annual ACESA Summit held in Phoenix in March focused on “Industry and Educators Inspired to Create Great Students.” Dr. William Harris, president and chief executive officer of Science Foundation Arizona (SFAz), and Jeff Goldberg, dean of engineering at the University of Arizona, were the keynote speakers. Also speaking were representatives of companies and professional organizations around Arizona describing their science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) initiatives. ACESA, the Arizona Council of Engineering and Scientific Associations, is an association of associations with a goal of serving as an umbrella under which all Arizona engineering and scientific associations can collaborate to increase their reach, reduce redundancy and improve their ability to affect change in the STEM arena throughout Arizona. There was a great networking session with members of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Society of Manufacturing Engineers and AFCEA as well as other professional organizations. Educators were able to present their industry collaboration initiatives and network with industry representatives on future cooperative opportunities.
