The Roanoke Blacksburg Technology Council is pleased to launch two new email lists to continue to build awareness and support STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) activities in the Roanoke-Blacksburg and SW VA Region. These two important new mail lists are related, but different in their purpose:
- [STEM-Discuss] – The RBTC STEM Forum open discussion list (to connect and ask questions).
- [STEM-Announce] – The RBTC STEM Forum announcements (read only) email list.
The [STEM-Discuss] mail list is a simple, free, open mail list that anyone can join to connect with regional STEM experts, ask questions and get help. Simple and quick way that STEM educators, experts and parents can all connect and share. Sign up here: lists.rbtc.tech/mailman/listinfo/stem-discuss
The [STEM-Announce] is a little more than just a mail list. It is a STEM event announcement submission system, a calendar of STEM events, and a email list all in one. You can think of [STEM-Announce] as an announcements (read only) mail list, but it takes community STEM event submissions from the community event webapp NextThreeDays.com and mirrors these events in a SWVA STEM Events google calendar that you can also subscribe to.
If this seems too complicated, just sign-up on the [STEM-Announce] mail list and you’re good. However, if you’re a gadget geek and prefer calendar events to remind you of what’s going on, you may want to only subscribe to the google calendar view.
Alternatively, if you don’t want to join or add anything to your deives, you can always just pop in and view all upcoming and previous STEM events by clicking on the either the google calendar link or the email list’s “Archives” link to see what’s going on around town.
