Truckee is a beautiful mountain town just outside Lake Tahoe on the Truckee River. The town is just off Highway 80 close to Northstar, Reno, and North Lake Tahoe and is also an Amtrak stop for the California Zephyr. Since CUE Rock Star Lake Tahoe takes place Monday through Wednesday you might consider adding a few days of family vacation on either end of the event. During the summer Truckee provides numerous outdoor recreational opportunities including mountain biking, hiking, fishing, and rafting - not to mention great dining options downtown.

All CUE Rock Star are purposely designed and focused small group events that have three items in common:
All three days consist of two, two-hour sessions allowing attendees to "dig in deep" and really get to know their topic and build resources to use next year. Morning sessions are repeated in the afternoon so that attendees have two different opportunities to attend a workshop.
Small Presenter to Attendee Ratios
CUE Rock Star events are built so that there is one presenter for every ten attendees and the events sell out at 60-70 attendees. This allows participants to get hands-on support and learn directly from knowledgeable educators. The amazing Faculty is there to support YOU, the real rock stars. CUE Rock Star Lake Tahoe has an all-star cast of presenters, but the staff isn't who these events are about. The attendees are the real rock stars and contribute to the magic these camps produce. These three days focus on bringing out the best of all in attendance and launching a new crop of edtech leaders.
Time for Collaboration and Networking
We purposely start late, end early, and take extended lunches so that all attendees have ample opportunities to collaborate and network as part of learning community.
