Student tech conference ifor web

The Central Rivers Student Technology Conference is a chance for K-12  students to collaborate with, learn from, and present to others how they are utilizing technology to drive their own learning;  shifting their learning environment and making connections beyond the classroom.

The AT Challenge!

New for the 2019 Central Rivers AEA Student Technology Conference is the AT Challenge!! AT stands for Assistive Technology and students are challenged to design a device utilizing technology that would assist a student with a physical disability.  Devices will be shared and judged at the Student Technology Conference.

The design must include the following:

  • A movable part that serves a purpose
  • The part must move on its own

Students will present to a panel of judges:

  • The purpose of the device and justification (explain how it meets the need).
  • A model of the device (can be a prototype).
  • The development process (emphasizing the engineering process).
  • The challenges you had in designing your device and how you overcame them.
  • How you made and/or programmed the device that made it move.

Watch for more information about presenting and attending the Central Rivers AEA Student Technology Conference coming soon.
If you have questions about the AT Challenge, please contact Ashley Flatebo (  If you have any questions about the conference itself, please contact Michelle Cowell (

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!
