Team GraphLock is rarin' to hit the road.
The Arizona folks behind the revolutionary calculator/lockdown app will head to San Antonio, Texas, this weekend for the 2017 ISTE conference - the largest education-technology conference in the world.
"Yes, we are driving," says Mallory Dyer, GraphLock's founder and CEO. "We decided to … turn it into a Texas road trip!"
From Sunday-Wednesday, Mallory and her husband (GraphLock COO) Josh will be in San Antonio to represent GraphLock and learn about the latest ed-tech trends at the annual conference and expo, which is expected to draw more than 18,000 educators and industry representatives.

"We are so thrilled to be a part of it," Mallory says. "It's a great opportunity to network and raise awareness about our product before the start of the school year."
The team also plans to meet with other ed-tech companies to talk about partnerships and ways in which they can work together to help teachers and students.
Because that's what this conference is all about - transforming education for a better, brighter future.
Team GraphLock doesn't plan to stop there. From San Antonio, the road trip heads to Hurst, Temple and Austin.
"We will be meeting with administrators and professors in Texas to demonstrate GraphLock and connect face to face - which is so much better," Mallory says. "We will also be meeting with one of our pilot professors to get additional feedback to find ways to continually improve GraphLock."
As for the 13-hour drive from Coolidge, Ariz., to San Antonio, Mallory says the team couldn't be more excited to make the trek.
"Big things are happening in the education world," Mallory says.
