2024 Conference Schedule

Optional for Teachers:  The in-person PD for C-STEM Academy I is on October 5 in Bainer Hall, UC Davis, followed with online sessions.

Join the UC Davis C-STEM Center for the 14th Annual Conference on Integrated Computing and STEM Education on October 4, 2024, at the UC Davis Conference Center. For the first time, we will also host a Pre-Conference on October 3, 2024, starting at 1pm.  Explore engaging solutions to challenges in math and CS education, learn from fellow teachers, discover ground-breaking strategies and best practices for integrating coding and robotics into K-12 math education under the new CA Math Framework, and share math success stories. The theme of this year's conference is Accelerating Student Achievement in Math, CS, and Engineering. 

C-STEM is a UC Approved Educational Preparation Program for Undergraduate Admission for all UC campuses.  The rigorous C-STEM Math, CS, and Engineering Design with Robotics Curriculum provides K-12 students with up to 13 years of integrated learning of math and computer science. C-STEM has UC A-G Program Status. High schools can readily and easily add the 20 “A-G approved” rigorous C-STEM courses to their own school’s A-G course lists to satisfy the UC/CSU admission requirements.  C-STEM provides professional development for teachers through the Joint UC Davis and UC Riverside  Computer Science  Supplementary Teaching Credential Authorization  Program.

The conference provides a forum for policy makers, researchers, district and school administrators, K-12 STEM teachers, and industrial partners to share their vision, research results, best practices, and experience on transforming math education with hands-on coding and robotics, especially on closing the math achievement gap for at-promise students and English language learners.

Gain first-hand experience integrating coding and robotics into math curriculum with our hands-on breakout sessions featuring Linkbots, Arduino, and more. See how teachers have successfully impacted students from ALL backgrounds through C-STEM K-12 Math, CS, and Engineering Design with Robotics Curriculum, Afterschool and Summer Robotics Camps and Robotics-Math CampsGIRL/GIRL+ CampsUjima GIRL/GIRL Project level-playing-field RoboPlay Competition.  

Also, learn more about the Joint UC Davis and UC Riverside Computer Science Supplementary Teaching Credential Authorization  Program and  teachers, schools, and districts increase their Smarter Balanced Math Test scores dramatically. 

A group of C-STEM teachers, administrator, and superintendent will be recognized as C-STEM Teacher of the Year, C-STEM Administrator of the Year, and Superintendent of the Year for their extraordinary pioneering work on integrated learning math with hands-on coding and robotics. C-STEM Distinguished Schools will also be recognized.

Breakout Sessions

Many hands-on breakout sessions are designed for Learning through doing. Learn from experienced C-STEM teachers to share their experience on how to integrate coding, robotics, Arduino into their math and STEM classes for hands-on learning to close the achievement gap. Bring your own laptop of Windows, Mac OS X, or Chromebook to join many hands-on sessions to learn, and take the latest technologies, curriculum, know-how, and excitement to your classroom teaching.
