For teams in and around the LP of Michigan, National Instruments will be offering a one day FREE "LabVIEW 8 Campus Workshop", to teach mentors how to teach LabVIEW to their students. Seminar link: http://sine.ni.com/apps/utf8/nievn.ni?action=display_offerings_by_event&event_id=26298&event_subtype=GENERAL&site=NIC&state=MI&country=US&l=US

Summary:
Place - Auditorium, Baker College, Flint MI (see below for map)
Date - Saturday, September 6, 2008, 9AM-5PM
Event - FREE "How to Teach LabVIEW 8 to your Students" Workshop

Note that this is DIFFERENT from the Frog Force seminar. The FF event is a repackaging of the three day "LabVIEW Basics I" *professional* course, into three successive Saturdays starting late September. That gets much further into the nitty-gritty of the LabVIEW construction environment itself.

This one will also have hands-on work, but is intended for teachers and mentors, so as I understand it will focus more on general techniques and methods. I highly recommend having team representatives attend BOTH of these events!

IMPORTANT NOTE - Patel later emailed me and said their registration link is broken, so please email Krupa directly to register, at: krupa.patel@ni.com

I've included Krupa's original email to me below, for the details.

Go Teams!
