40th Annual STEM Conference - Council of Math/Science Educators of San Mateo County

here will be over twenty-five workshops and a variety of exhibitors that provide participants with a wide range of practical and realistic ideas and resources to use in their science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) programs from Pre-K to grade 12. With California’s adoption of the Common Core State Standards and the Next Generation Science Standards, we are dedicated to ensuring that we prepare our teachers to take on these educational policies.

Teachers, administrators and parents are invited to explore the many exciting aspects of STEM education and learn about and discuss the latest news, information and issues. This is also an opportunity to network with colleagues who can assist you in building your programs and meet new friends that share your interests and love of teaching.

The 40th Annual STEM Conference is sponsored by the The STEM Center at the San Mateo County Office of Education and the Council of Math Science Educators of San Mateo County (CMSESMC).
