Opening Ceremony & Keynote

Bruce Beasley (born 1939, in Los Angeles, California) is an American abstract expressionist sculptor born in Los Angeles and currently living and working in Oakland, California. He attended Dartmouth College from 1957–59, and the University of California, Berkeley from 1959-62 where he earned his BA.

His oeuvre, mostly monumental pieces, consists of works in metal, both cast and fabricated, and cast acrylic. Most recently, Beasley has been utilizing 3D printing as rapid prototyping for his most challenging casting projects.

Beasley ranks among the most productive sculptors of the post- Henry Moore/David Smith generation of abstract sculptors. Today, Beasley is recognized as one of the most noteworthy and innovative sculptors on the American West Coast. His work can be found in the permanent collection of 30 art museums around the world, including: Museum of Modern Art in New York City; the Guggenheim Museum, New York City; the Los Angeles County Museum of Art; the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; the National Art Museum of China in Beijing; the Musee National d'Art Moderne-Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris; the Smithsonian Museum of American Art in Washington, DC; the Kunsthalle Mannheim in Germany; and the Islamic Museum in Cairo.

CITEA is pleased to welcome Bruce Beasley as its keynote speaker at the 88th CITEA Annual Conference at Laney College in Oakland California.

Expanding Opportunities in Civil Technology
Civil engineering is going through tremendous change which opens up opportunities for tech savvy high school and community college grads in fields such as Reality Capture (called surveying, Geomatics, photogrammetry);  transportation engineering technology, water resources management and more. These same subjects are preparatory toward an engineering degree or to employment as a technician.  The presentation will discuss all of those technologies as well as demonstrating several software products including:  Context Capture for automated photogrammetry for converting digital photographs to 3D mesh models; Concept Station, a new game-like software for quickly creating a 3D design of a new corridor (highway, rail road, pipeline..) including quantity and cost calculations, Water software including city water distribution, waste water collection, hydrology and more.  Attendees will leave with video and other training material that can be used in a classroom for orientation into new technology.  The software is also available economically for more in-depth classes.

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW TO GET YOUR HIGH SCHOOL AUTOMOTIVE PROGRAM ATTS CERTIFIED FOR CALIFORNIA & EETC CERTIFIED.

Presenters - George Hritze and John Chocholak
Automotive Technician Training Standards (ATTS) is a program managed by the California Automotive Business Coalition (CalABC). It was established by a group of representatives from the automotive service and repair industry and automotive technology educators representing the entire state of California. The mission of the ATTS program is certifying automotive training programs that meet or exceed industry standards. The presentation will focus on Level I Certification for high schools; what Level I is, the program requirements, the student outcomes and the application process. There will also be a description of the history of the ATTS Program and the three levels of certification.

Also covered will be EETC certification for first year intro auto programs.

Freehand Sketch Training Using a Touchscreen

Freehand sketching of orthographics and isometrics is important for concept generation, teamwork, and improving one’s spatial visualization skills. However, many students are not confident with their freehand drawing and their poor spatial visualization skills makes it difficult for them to learn CAD. We have developed at UC San Diego an iPad App that teaches sketching. Students perform assigned orthographic and isometrics on the touchscreen, and the App automatically grades their work. Students become engaged with the immediate feedback, and can receive hints when they are stuck. The App allows students to work at their own pace, and instructors can see in the assignment log which students need more help. I will bring 20 iPads for the workshop, so attendees can have a hands-on experience with the App. The App will be available on Android, Windows, Chrome, and iOS in summer 2017.

Using 3D Printing to Teach Orthographic Projection
A key aspect of many trades is the ability to visualize three-dimensional objects in two-dimensional space and to work backward from standard prints which depict objects in orthographic projection to construct three-dimensional parts. This type of spatial visualization is a developed skill and so differs from principles or terms which can be understood from texts and lectures. Because of this, students often struggle when first learning to read prints and instructors in the Machine Technology Department at Laney College have expended much energy to improve teaching techniques. The department’s Engineering Drawings for Machinists, Welders, and Industrial Maintenance Technicians course uses "Print Reading for Industry" by Goodheart-Wilcox Publisher as a textbook. The textbook is a reasonably effective teaching aid and its main strengths are the many exercises at the end of each chapter and the large format industry prints which come with the main text. Practice and repetition is enough for some students, but experience has shown that all students (and certainly those who are kinesthetic learners) benefit from three-dimensional representations or, even better, physical replicas of parts. This presentation will address the usage of cutting-edge design and manufacturing technologies, primarily Computer-Aided Design and 3D Printing, to develop students’ spatial visualization abilities.

Wild Caught! Photon-Rich!…Powering projects with Solar Energy
Engaging students in purpose-based solar energy projects is empowering and inspirational for all involved. Our recent focus is on designing and building Solar Emergency Preparedness systems for home or school – a small solar module that charges one or more powerbanks for phone charging and powering a light. We’ll share how students are making these systems for their own families and for others without electricity. A related project is to design a communal charging station for school or other community situation. Solar Schoolhouse will share how to integrate these solar service learning projects into your classrooms.
