Jill heads up the International competition for underwater robotics.  She will be teaching three workshops; one Friday afternoon and two on Saturday.  Dr McKone has directed and coached several Co-Lin teams to international awards in underwater robotics.  We are in for a treat with these two experts in this field.

Each workshop will be limited to 20 attendees.  High school and college students can attend.

We will continue our development of the Employable Skills Set for K-12.
