boys in a room with sharp power tools? How in the
world do you keep those students safe? They say the best
ideas are not original, so come prepared to share your
resources and tricks with teachers across the country and
learn some new ones in exchange. John, a high school
instructor, will moderate the session and bring ideas he
uses in his shop that have kept his students accident-free
in the shop (“knock on wood”) for 7 years. Safety instruc-
tion, testing and follow up will be covered, as well as
good tips to keep your shop safe all year long.

Get in the Game with Grants!
; John Stearns, Amity High School
Need new tools and equipment? Do you have a big idea
for a student project but your budget is strapped? Have
you consider applying for grants but are intimidated by the
process? This will be an idea session on how to look for grant
organizations, both national and regional; understand how
and what they want to fund; how to read and prepare grant
proposals using key words and phrases in order to maximize
your chances of receiving an award; and how to report and
maintain a good relationship with grant organizations. Every
prepared grant has the potential for utter disaster. Learn from
others’ mistakes to avoid repeating those same mistakes.
