Californians Dedicated to Education Foundation, in partnership with the California Department of Education, and the California Commission on the Status of Women and Girls, invite all STEAM enthusiasts to join us for our 11th annual convening on February 9-10, 2024 at the Long Beach Convention & Entertainment Center in Long Beach, California! Learn more and register today!
Together we will share knowledge, research, and stories to support each other in navigating our personal and professional journeys. The Symposium will provide a brave space for exploring equity in STEAM learning, particularly for underrepresented populations we seek to grow in STEAM: educators and students of color, girls, multilingual learners, foster youth, unsheltered students, LGBTQIA+, low socio-economic students, and those with special learning needs. Participants will be able to embark upon this journey immediately with access to resources, collaborators, and a network that seeks to leverage STEAM education as a tool for developing STEAM Identity, civic engagement, social responsibility, student agency, and other shared goals to benefit future generations.
We remain committed to advancing equity in STEAM, and will focus on the following themes during breakout and keynote sessions:
You Belong In STEAM: Creating conditions to nurture student agency, identity, and inclusion through joyful STEAM learning experiences.
Strengthen The Educator Workforce: Recruiting, Training, and Retaining Diverse & Inclusive STEAM Leaders.
