The draft agenda for the 7th annual ESIP Teacher Workshop (Tuesday July 
19th) includes an opportunity for ESIP members to present 10-minute 
Ignite-like presentations and we're hoping to hear from you!

The workshop theme is "Using Recreational Drones in STEM Education" so 
we will be prioritizing presentations that can make connections with 
recreational drones.

If you're planning to attend the ESIP summer meeting and would like to 
share a resource with educators please reply to me, Margaret Mooney 
(margaret.mooney at ssec.wisc.edu) with the following information:

1) Title of talk:
2) Your Name:
3) 1-sentence description of your resource/topic (include URL if 
4) Connection(s) to recreational drones & STEM

The actual length of each presentation will depend on the final number 
of presenters but 15 minutes will be the longest and 10 minutes will be 
the minimum.

Hope to see you this summer!
