Ethernet 40th Birthday Party Celebrations and Charity Auction Awards Dinner (May 22nd - Evening):
“Ethernet Idol” Innovation Awards: From a short list of the industry’s most innovative and dynamic contenders, a team of analysts and IT industry gurus have eliminated all but their top three contestants. The three finalists will each make a brief presentation to the assembled dinner guests before a select panel of judges including representatives from PARC.
Celebrity auction in aid of STEM Education: We need more students that excel in science, math, technology and engineering to become contributors to the global technology marketplace. High-tech companies have vacancies due to a lack of qualified candidates, and the demand for scientists and mathematicians is projected to grow dramatically. Over 50% of US 8th graders receive instruction from a science and math teacher without a relevant degree or real world experience to inspire their students.
The Computer History Museum, as a 2012 STEM Innovation Award Winner, and HP Catalyst Initiative participant, is proud to raise money for Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) education by hosting tonight’s Ethernet Celebrity Auction.
Bids will help educate tomorrow’s innovators.
