Symposium Schedule

The UC Davis C-STEM Center, Redlands Unified School District, San Bernardino County of Superintendent of Schools, and partners will organize the  2022 C-STEM Symposium on April 21st, 2022 at the San Bernardino County Office of Education.  The theme of this year is Integrating Computer Science into Math Education to Close the Achievement Gap.

The Annual C-STEM Symposium provides a forum for Southern California district and school administrators, and K-12 teachers in Southern California to  share their visions, best practices, and experiences in transforming math education with hands-on coding and robotics, with a special focus especially on closing the math achievement gap for at-promise students and English language learners.

Due to the COVID-19 and social distancing requirements, a maximum of only up to three administrators  from each  invited school district will be able to attend this one-day event packed with inspiring speeches and hands-on sessions about transforming math education with coding and robotics through formal and expanded learning.  In addition, up to two K-12 teachers from each  invited school district will be able to attend a companion pre-Symposium Professional Development session on April 20th, also hosted also at the San Bernardino County Office of Education.

C-STEM is a UC Approved Educational Preparation Program for Undergraduate Admission for all UC campuses with UCOP A-G Program Status. The C-STEM program transforms math education, helps close the math achievement gap, and engages traditionally unrepresented groups and at risk students in hands-on learning math with computing and robotics, as shown in C-STEM Math Success Stories.

Experienced C-STEM teachers will share their insights and strategies for integrating C-STEM coding and robotics into classroom teaching, and how to get started. Attendees will have the opportunity to explore C-STEM Math-ICT Curriculum, strategies, resources, and robotics with Arduino and Linkbots. Experienced C-STEM administrators will talk about the successful implementation of C-STEM hands-on learning and discuss long-term benefits and adaptability of the program.
