Gregg Cannady will document attendance and collect sample lessons.
Each participant is responsible for submitting CSM tuition and required forms directly to CSM.  Details forthcoming.

ABOVE and BEYOND
 
We hope that participation in all three phases will lead to sustainable partnerships that go above and beyond these workshops. The innovative learning culture that you all will foster can be an example for the future. 
 
Please check out the following areas found on the Lockheed Martin website. We welcome suggestions for future workshops and collaborations that would be meaningful to you and your school.
