Please remember the focus of this conference is the students and giving them an opportunity to showcase their knowledge and skills. Please feel free to ask questions to further your own knowledge but refrain from directing the learning from the students.  We encourage you to be observers and learners and soak up the awesomeness that surrounds you!
