#BigBeacon Twitter Chat Aug 27 – Semester Kickoff!!!

Twitter_chatBig Beacon is entering into an exciting period of growth, and we are eager to kickoff this new season with our weekly #BigBeacon twitter chat on Wednesday, August 27 at 8 PM EST.

Join us as we consider the meaning, vision, and direction of Big Beacon, with the conversation facilitated by our leaders: Founder Dave Goldberg, Erica Lee-Garcia, and Meagan Pollock.

Guiding questions for the conversation will be:

  • What has Big Beacon meant to you?
  • What would you like for Big Beacon to become?

We welcome new tweeters and veteran tweeters alike who desire to challenge the status quo and lead a transformation in engineering education! #BigBeacon tweeters are engineers, professors, K-12 STEM educators, students, parents, researchers, and concerned citizens, too.

Join us on Wednesday August 27 at 8 PM EST to kick off our fall semester of weekly Twitter Chats. Follow #BigBeacon
