KETIV Technologies will host Lewis Chappelear, 2008 California Teacher of the Year and National Teacher of the Year Finalist, at their upcoming seminar and lunch on June 10, 2008.

Lewis will discuss how we can build the future of engineering through educational initiatives. For example, we can:

  • recruit students for engineering careers in Southern California
  • create effective business-education partnerships
  • build a stronger future for the design community in America

The seminar will be held in conjunction with the June 10 Autodesk(R) Experience Tour in Anaheim, during which Autodesk will introduce their 2009 software solutions for CAD (computer-aided design) and engineering.

Industries featured at KETIV's lunch event:

  • civil engineering
  • plant (P&ID)
  • manufacturing (industrial and mechanical design)


Lewis Chappelear is a passionate advocate for the next generation of CAD designers. He focuses on using science and engineering to give disadvantaged youths a brighter future. By inspiring high-school students to become the next generation of engineers, he addresses the shortage of skilled labor which poses a significant challenge to the future of CAD design and engineering in the United States.
