Technical Literacy Award 2017

The Livermore Valley Joint Unified School District has revealed their plan to enrich the annual district-wide science fair (Science Odyssey) for grades 1 to 12 to include a separate award for notebook quality starting in 2018. This reflects the integration of literacy and science activities that the East Bay STC chapter has supported for many years. A future newsletter article will discuss how this notebook award rolls out as details become available.

East Bay Chapter to WordPress – 4 May 2017 [Meeting]

We are excited to share with you our new chapter website in WordPress!

  • I’ll talk about some of the reasons we made this move.
  • We’ll take a tour through the new site so you can see how to reach the information you want. This is your chance to ask your questions and to tell us what you want to see on the website.
  • If there’s time, we’ll also look at how to use WordPress to update information on a page, or how to write a post (an article) for our newsletter.

This migration also creates opportunities not available before. You can now help the chapter while at the same time building your resume. It means you can volunteer without having to take on a big job. You can even volunteer without having to come to meetings!

Come if you want to learn about our new website, come if you’re interested in learning about WordPress! And please come even if you already have WordPress experience — we’d love to hear your input. Continue reading
