PHOTOS: ATE PI Conference 2013

This year the ATE program celebrated its 20th anniversary, and the ATE PI Conference provided the perfect setting to celebrate all that this program has achieved over the past twenty years and to plan ahead for the future. There were excellent workshops, sessions, roundtables, showcase exhibits and plenary speakers at the conference this year.

The National CTC was involved with several sessions at the conference, along with our booth and student showcase. Also two of our National Visiting Committee members were the final day’s keynote speakers sharing their views on the future of tech innovation.

Here are a few photos from the conference. Enjoy!
