2016 will be an exciting year for science education
in California. Implementation of the California NGSS
will be in year three, the California Science Curriculum
Framework will be released for a second public
review and may even be adopted before the end of the
year, components of the state's new accountability system
will be on-line, and we will have a better idea of what
to expect for science from our statewide
The only place in California that will have information
about all of these components as well as offer high
quality educational workshops and opportunities for
networking with fellow educators to talk about how this
translates into your local context is at the 2016 California
Science Education Conference.
Attendees enjoy access to over 150 90-minute workshops
-- providing you the extended time needed to dive deeper
into topics; two top-notch keynote speakers sure to
inspire and inform; and a half dozen focus speakers
lecturing on topics that are at the cutting edge of
science, STEM, and education. Option events include
exciting field courses, in-depth 3-hour short courses,
and fun and educational evening events designed to help
attendees decompress after a long day of learning.
No other event will bring together this many California science educators in one location that is large enough to offer the diversity of programming our educators need, but also small enough to create an environment that allows for connections to be made, inspirations to be had, and moments to be shared.
Please save the date for October 21-23, 2016. Full
Registration opens in May 2016.
