Hundreds of volunteers participate in this community-wide event each year, logging thousands of hours of volunteering time on this day alone.

In the past decade, the classroom has moved rapidly from the traditional pen, paper, and chalkboard classroom towards the digital classroom. Communicating, collaborating and sharing knowledge between students and their teachers via email, forums, chat, blogs, and even text messaging is commonplace now. But how much of these technology are accessible to users with disabilities? Can they access the Internet and electronic information? Can they participate effectively in an online chat and or discussion?


From the Speakers: Join us to hear about how a small team was able to create a mechanism to connect nonprofits with people in the community interested in volunteering... and what you might want to consider if you want to make something happen that you really believe in. Hear from Indi Go Art Co-Op how they've used the site to recruit volunteers for their mission of providing a space in which artists, musicians, and appreciators of art can come together to celebrate the arts.


We will be taking our first MSTE Friday Lunch Field Trip this week!  

The University of Illinois Pollinatarium is the first free-standing science center in the nation devoted to flowering plants and their pollinators.  On our trip to the Pollinatarium we will learn about pollinators and the BeeSpotter project, a joint project between the MSTE Office with the Department of Entomology for the past 3 years.
