Dear County and District Superintendents and Charter School Administrators:
I would like to invite you and your district’s administrators and teachers to join us at the First Annual California Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) Symposium 2013 on November 18–19, 2013, at the Sacramento Convention Center. This will be a one-of-a-kind gathering that will showcase STEM programs and curriculum, strategies and resources, Common Core and Next Generation Science Standards, and over 150 presenters who are enthusiastically preparing to share their best practices with you.
California is the birthplace of many of the technologies that make this country great. If we want California to once again be on the cutting edge of innovation, we must provide our teachers with the tools they need to prepare our young people to effectively address the opportunities and challenges we will encounter as a state, as a county, and as a worldwide community. This conference is a beginning—a beginning to a fresh approach that integrates and enhances STEM education and facilitates student interest, learning, and creativity.
Framing the one-and-a-half days of workshops and presentations will be five distinguished and entertaining keynote speakers:
