    • MNCEME Strategic Plan 2010
    • MNCEME Strategy 2010  The MNCEME goals can be thought of as contributing to the following major MNSCU goals: • Increase access and opportunity • Promote and measure high quality learning • Enhance economic competitiveness • Innovative  The MNCEME goals also interact with each other as shown in the following diagram.
    • MNCEME Strategy 2010 (S) Sustainability A=S+K C=S+P (K) (P) Knowledge STEM Center Pipeline =D=P +K+S B=K+P
    • P. STEM Pipeline  Expand hands-on ZAP summer camp offerings. Provide priority funding for summer camps. • Action • Develop RFP to fund ZAP camps for summer 2010. • Hold ZAP-camp 2010 spring conference to share best practices, discuss assessment, and build a community of ZAP camps.  Expand Rube Goldberg and other competitions, building on the existing successful events. • Action • Conduct Rube Goldberg competitions • Display results at The Works
    • K. Knowledge Center  Draw on expertise of advisory board members to identify and explore advanced technologies. • Action • Identify advanced technologies such as ISO 50001, Cap and Trade, energy management, welding, applications of traditional manufacturing processes in biotechnology, etc. • Form steering committee to work with partner schools to identify their expertise in identified areas of interest and establishing lead institution for that technology.  Create energy optimization programming. • Action • Develop an energy management focus for the Center: ISO 50001, LEED, Energy Star • Disseminate energy optimization best practices using knowledge from industry leaders. • Partner with national organizations leading the way in energy issues: Georgia Tech in ISO 50001; Edison Welding Institute in Energy Use; etc.  Effectively disseminate knowledge • Action • Feature topics in Maximize Minnesota events • Highlight issues in Measure of Success Magazine
    • S. Sustainability  Increase funding from joint agreements among partner institutions: e.g. shared curricula, faculty, courses, credentials. • Action • Provide training in Purdue/SME ‘green manufacturing’ program for faculty; offer to industry, share revenues.
    • B. Pipeline and Knowledge Center (P + K)  Create forums and interactive sharing capabilities using web tools selectively to reach targeted audiences: e.g. LinkedIn, YouTube, FaceBook, Blog, Twitter, etc. • Action • Grow Twitter followers to 1,000 by July • Create instructive STEM webinars for adults  Create new RFP for funding projects around the energy management theme. • Action • Deans and IAB to form task group to define RFP
    • A. Sustainability and Pipeline (S + P)  Partner with other organizations promoting STEM visibility and teacher education. • Action • Take active role in state initiative to form and implement a “Community of Practices in STEM” • Provide support and leadership for statewide STEM Initiative at the Minnesota State Fair  Ensure long-term success of Project Lead the Way across Minnesota • Action • Seek collaborative funding for Program Director • Advocate for longitudinal study by DOE to substantiate value of PLTW
    • C. Sustainability and Knowledge Center (S + K)  Engage industry with the Center. Provide opportunity for manufacturers to participate in P/20 education. • Action • Provide brief, weekly electronic updates on Center activities. • Structure the Industry Advisory Board to be a comprehensive representation of Minnesota industry; instrumental in informing partner schools and advising of industry needs. Add IAB members to fill gaps and broaden industry participation in MNCEME.
    • D. Sustainability, Knowledge Center & Stem Pipeline (P + K + S)  Develop a plan with IAB, faculty and other stakeholders to create a comprehensive knowledge-based engineering technology center. • Action • Form task group to transform MNCEME to have the greatest positive impact on job creation in Minnesota by maximizing the deliverable expertise that exists among MNCEME partners • Merge engineering and manufacturing. Expand to a systems approach to the continuum of new product development through engineering design to manufacturing, supply chain and clusters. • Shift focus to development of leadership and culture in manufacturing organizations, systems thinking, developing competitive advantage through identifying customers unarticulated needs. • Focus on access, opportunity, high-quality learning, economic competitiveness and innovation.
