    Chattanooga Engineers Club monthly Monday presentation -- 

    Problem Solving through Mastery Learning

    with speakers

    Michael Stone, Director of Innovative Learning at Public Education Foundation

    and Kristin Burrus, Global Center for Digital Innovation Lead at STEM School Chattanooga

    (see required Registration info below)

    As workforce needs continue to evolve to meet the ever-changing demands of the modern economy, educators are increasingly faced with the burden of preparing students to develop agile skillsets. Since 2014, a digital fabrication ecosystem of FabLabs and advanced maker spaces has emerged in Hamilton County Schools that is empowering students to learn and grow as they engage with state-of-the-art equipment (including CNC routers, 3D printers, laser cutters, micro-electronics, and traditional woodworking equipment). However, rather than focusing on learning discrete skills related to specific technologies, the teachers running these labs are using them to grow students as independent, agile problem solvers, capable of quickly learning new skills and applying them to solve new problems. No longer do we talk about “master teachers.” Instead, our teachers have evolved into master learners who model how to effectively identify, analyze, evaluate, and apply new information to solve a dynamic range of problems. This was recently evidenced when 68 teachers contributed more than 1,000 volunteer hours to create a 3D printing farm at STEM School Chattanooga  where they designed, produced, assembled and distributed more than 7,000 face shields for medical providers during the first month of the shutdown brought on COVID-19.

    Michael Stone, Director of Innovative Learning at Public Education Foundation, and Kristin Burrus, Global Center for Digital Innovation Lead at STEM School Chattanooga, will share how they led this work and how these teachers are transforming learning experiences for students through digital fabrication.

    CEC members may request a 1 PDH credit within the registration process.

    Chattanooga Engineers Club monthly tour at PlainView LED

    2802 Bell Arbor Ave.

    Chattanooga, TN 37406

    Joint Program with AGC East Tennessee and Chattanooga Regional Manufacturing Association

    PlainView Group is a Chattanooga company founded by Todd Plain consisting of two companies- Plainview Outdoor Advertising and Plainview LED. PlainView LED is the newer part of the business with sales of LED sign products and technology domestically across 10 states. These products are sold domestically as well as internationally to billboard operators and a network of sign shop distributors.

    The company had originally planned to build a facility at property located at Bonny Oaks Drive and Highway 153, but the Bell Arbor property suddenly became available.  With an existing  10,500 square foot building on 5.3 acres, in one of the city's opportunity zones, it made more sense to relocate quickly in this existing facility. It has ample office space, is ideal for assembly of both small format business digital signs as well as large format billboards, under one roof with room for expansion. 

    PlainView LED has developed its own proprietary software which allows customers to create and schedule its own content.  Customers can access the software from their mobile devices remotely. The UL approved smart module can be used in all its different product lines. Now with the new site PlainView LED is positioned for it’s share of projected industry growth.

    We will see a company positioned for growth.

    Our hosts will be Daryl Thomson-VP of Sales and Mike Baskette- Sales Manager.

    Tour groups will be limited to 20, a second group starting at 12:30 will be added if over 20.

    Social distancing protocol will be in effect. Face masks will be required. Hand sanitizer will be available
