STLP - On Site Fall Showcase Details

Published: 6/5/2013 3:12 PM
 
Each Fall Showcase is listed with details concerning the parking, Internet access and lunch.
Schools need to bring media, equipment, extension cords and cables. Your table may be far from a power source, bring a long cord to get to the electric. Some sites you must request Internet to gain a guest account.
Some sites have difficulty maintaining all the power for the projects at each table. Have a back up plan if the electric power is limited or goes out.
Test all media off the school network to make sure it will run properly and load all files.

Please read these pages as you prepare for Fall Showcase:
