Over 60% of our registered facilitators have already created a personalized agenda for the Summer Seminar, thank you!! If you haven’t created your schedule, be sure to take advantage of the opportunity to customize your schedule before July 1 or one will be created for you. Your personalized agendas will be provided for you in your registration folder upon arrival. Eighteen (18) professional development hours will be provided to you for full participation with additional hours provided to facilitator presenters.
Registration payment deadline is July 1. You were notified by email if we have received your registration fee. If you are unsure on if this payment has been received, please contact Phaedra Hawkins. Payment in full is expected at on-site registration for any unpaid balances. We will provide a receipt for reimbursement if needed. The deadline to drop the summer seminar without penalty is July 1.
We hope you are making plans to join us for our Seminar evening activities. Wednesday, June 20 the staff will be chilling at Fast Lane Entertainment. Join us for laser tag, bowling (ladies bowl for free on Wednesdays!), go-carts, nerf balls, and more! Thursday night, July 21, will be our casual evening get-together located in the Embassy Lobby at 7:30 PM. Desserts and drinks will be provided while connecting with other facilitators and staff. Please RSVP by July 1 if you are planning to join us so I will have an accurate head count and plenty of treats to go around.
Prize Upload – We already have a nice prize pool growing for our drawing during the closing session including several hotel packages, restaurant gift cards, and more. Take a few minutes and participate in at least one opportunity to be entered into the drawing. This year you can upload five websites you find useful, reflect on your program and project sophistication, complete a student training survey and share 5 photos.
Please contact us with any questions. We look forward to seeing you in July!

Remember, registration for these events must take place in advance so we can plan for your materials and meals.
Facilitators now have the ability to create their individual session schedules for both the tech camp and Seminar. Use the links on the left-hand side of the page to create your schedule.
Tech Camp – If you are registered for tech camp, you may select one session in any or all of the three time slots. Tech Camp registration was created to allow flexibility for your schedule.

This type of registration system allows facilitators to select sessions relevant to the growth of their program.
