Conference_Side_Column_Register-Early

You’re Invited – Register Today!

2016 will be an exciting year for science education in California. Implementation of the California NGSS will be in year three, theCalifornia 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 assessment system.

*AVAILABLE NOW*: Registration Rates and Early Bird Registration Form

The only conference 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.
