The North-west and Far West ASTE Regions plan to hold their regional business meeting, a research/sharing session, and a large poster session in conjunction with the NSTA Regional meeting in Long Beach. This will allow ASTE members to attend two conferences, thus making airfare less of an issue (those western states are large!). It is hoped at that at this conference, we will build synergy strengthening the activity and scholarly exchange of these two ASTE regions. The poster session includes the following presenters: Wendy Ruchti, Miriam Munck, Donna Rainboth, Adele Schepige, Judith Morrison, Bill Straits, Bill Ritz, Ramoncito Casillan, Patricia Morrell, Stephanie Salomone, Mike Mueller, Youngjin Song, Teresa Higgins, Miyoun Lim, Lisa Martin-Hansen, Toutoule Ntoya, Christine Ullerich, Marco Masoni, Rochelle Tawiah, Frederick Freking, Jim Kisiel and Laura Henriques.
A hands-on workshop at NSTA Long Beach will be facilitated by Aimee Navickis-Brasch and Anne Kern titled: The Fish Weir Engineering Challenge: A culturally relevant activity.
