Next week, Feb. 6-10th is the Texas Computer Education Association’s Convention in Austin, Texas. Tory Belleci from Discovery’s own “Mythbuster’s” will be the opening keynote presenter on Wednesday, February 8th. His session is titled, “Engaging Students in Science and Technology Wednesday Opening Keynote”.
Several DEN members will be presenting throughout the convention and a list of those sessions, times and locations can be found at this URL: https://sites.google.com/site/texasdenlc/tcea-2012-speakers?pli=1.
Wednesday afternoon will be an IRON DEN Challenge with several of the Texas DEN Leadership Council Members competing in teams to see who can develop the best digital artifact in a pre-determined amount of time that represents a given topic. Stop by the Hilton in the corporate room, which is directly across the street from the convention center, for the challenge and cheer on your DEN team members!
Discovery will also have sessions in the corporate room at the Hilton Hotel so make sure you stop by throughout the three days of the convention as well. The corporate room location is:

Another fun event is the DEN VIP reception held Wednesday evening that you can still register for the reception that will be held at Max’s Wine Drive from 5:30 – 7:30pm. You will have the opportunity to mingle with the DEN folks and meet Dave Salmoni, Discovery’s “Animal Planet” TV host at a VIP reception.
