I just got off the phone with Mark Dunkel, one of my favorite SharePoint gurus at Microsoft, and he tells me this up-coming webcast is one of the most inspiring demonstrations of Microsoft SharePoint technologies for both higher education and K12 customers.

This is a special, co-hosted webcast between Microsoft and the Center for Advanced Technologies (CAT).

CAT is a public magnet program housed at Lakewood Senior High School, located in the southernmost part of Pinellas County, on the west coast of Florida. Newsweek magazine ranked the CAT Program 16th in the nation in 2010—and after seeing the preview of this event it’s easy to understand why.

During this presentation you will see some fantastic demonstrations of student developed solutions build on the SharePoint 2010 platform.  That’s right STUDENTS.  These academic specific, real world solutions include Silverlight, Lesson Plans, Hall Pass Monitoring, and Asset Tracking.
