Discussion Panel volunteers needed for May 10th. We would like to have 5-6 volunteers to participate in a panel discussion for statistics/ biostatistics careers after the award announcement. Each volunteer will talk for 5 minutes about his/her journey, experiences, tips, and advice for graduate students and high school science fair winners who are entering into the world of statistics. Any educational background (BS, MS, PhD) with industrial/academic experience would be welcomed to join this discussion. These 5-6 panelists will ideally "prime the pump" for discussion from all attendees. If you are interested, please reply to Kristofer Jennings firstname.lastname@example.org ASAP.

Professional Development Institutes for Math Teachers in Houston
Kristen Heller from HP Education Solutions would like to share the information about some upcoming 3-day professional development workshops for math teachers in Houston this summer. The AP Summer Institutes will offer teachers a chance to explore advanced math concepts and utilize AP exam-level examples in either AP Calculus or AP Statistics subject-specific workshops. All of the Instructors are seasoned AP teachers with an average of 20 years’ experience. For only $150, participants will receive the 3-day workshop, an HP Prime Graphing Calculator (a $150 retail value) to keep, meals during the Institute, and a certificate for 15 hours of Professional Development.
There are still a few more spaces available and registration is very easy. You can learn about dates, agendas, and registration by visiting the HP Prime AP Summer Institute website at http://h30677.www3.hp.com/workshops. Content is specific for AP Calculus and AP Statistics but general Calculus and Statistics teachers are also welcome to attend.
