Thank you for a Great LACUE Conference
A big thank you goes out to all of our sponsors, presenters, award winners, and attendees for making the 2017 LACUE Conference such a big success. We have heard nothing but good things from all of you, and we look forward to seeing you back next year. So save the dates of November 27th-29th, 2018!

The Maker Space was THE Place!
We had a BLAST at the first ever LACUE maker space! Conference participants explored robotics, coding, 3D printing, maker and engineering activities, and so much more. Teachers from across the state submitted student and teacher-made creations for the first ever cardboard challenge. It was a wonderful atmosphere of networking and sharing throughout the two days of the conference. We are looking forward to a bigger and better maker space next year. Until then, you can still access all of the resources at the LACUE website:
