Synopsis:
Join your SBE Chapter 48 colleagues in a special 6-hour IP networking workshop led by SBE's Wayne Pecena. This IP workshop will be directly followed by an SBE proctored exam, with potential to receive SBE's Certified Broadcast Network Technologist (CBNT) certification! Exam takers will need to have signed up one month prior to the workshop (no later than February 21st) to participate in this SBE proctored exam.

SMPTE members are also welcome to take the workshop and exam. Check the following page for Information on non member certification: https://www.sbe.org/sections/cert_index.php

Certification and SBE Membership
While membership in the SBE is not a requirement of the Certification Program, and because SBE members share in the overhead cost of all SBE activities, non-member certification fees are higher.

Non-members who certify at a technologist or engineering level are eligible to receive membership in SBE through April 1 of the following year. We hope you take advantage of this proposal. It is our hope that you will like what SBE has to offer and will want to continue your membership and support of your Society.

About the exam:
SBE Proctored exam time is limited to 3 hours and is open book, and open internet. Wireless internet will be available for the exam. See SBE certification FAQ here: https://www.sbe.org/sections/CertFAQ.php

Continental breakfast and lunch will be served, along with refreshments during the workshop. This event is limited to 30 participants, so register quickly!

Build Something Cool!

Presenter: 

 

#WIE need your support for the local IEEE affiliate K-12 team’s  5th annual “Build Something Cool” event on Saturday February 23rd at the Downtown Auraria Campus in Denver. In past events, over 80 kids built an electronics project of their own and got to talk to real life engineers. See past photos here!  #WIE need volunteers to help teach soldering and help with some cool sewing of smart fabric kits.

This is a FREE event  for grades 6 to 12 thanks to the support of our sponsors-  Participating Kids 6-12 receive electronics kits of their choice, the required tools, guidance on how to build it, and lunch for everyone! Kids even get to keep what they build!

This year the IEEE also have an added “experimental” kit selection to add more Art to STEAM projects.

Parents: Visit https://msudenver.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_5ssOUZc85WL7rDv   for details and to reserve your spot!

Volunteers:
If you are an IEEE member, register here: https://events.vtools.ieee.org/tego_/event/manage/186515

If you are not, please email Kate Landow Kate.Landow@dish.com with City, State, preferred email, and phone number.

If there is a member interested in hosting a “science table” please also email Kate. The organizers have shared that they would be interested in tables such as the Physics of light measurement. That seems to align well with the SBE/SMPTE expertise!

Check in periodically to the IEEE WIE webpage for information about upcoming events as well as past meeting notes.
