This webinar series will spotlight the experience, insights, and outcomes of teachers that are engaging their students with the C-STEM Program. In each session teachers and administrators will discuss their classroom and students, as well as share their strategies for successful engaged learning with C-STEM, especially for distance learning.

May 5 – Kristen Sandler, Coordinator – Secondary Mathematics Teaching & Learning Division, Pamela Matea, Math Teacher, SouthRidge Tech Middle School, Fontana USD

We are struggling to keep our students connected and engaged and the C-STEM Program allows our students to get hands-on experiences virtually and they love their Friday challenges. The networking capabilities of the program and participants gives you backup for questions and suggestions.

June 2 – Sandra Soto, 5th Grade Teacher, Cambridge Elementary, Travis Unified School District

When I first started using C-STEM with elementary school students, some people told me it was too hard, that the kids were too young.  As I began using the program, I have proven them wrong.  Through C-STEM, my students have learned computer coding in Ch/C/C++ even as young as fourth grade.  In this webinar, I will share my experience on how I’ve used C-STEM to teach math, science and art.  I’ve taken 5th and 6th grade students to the RoboPlay Challenge Competition and they have both loved and grown by such wonderful experience.  In addition, my after school group have developed videos for RoboPlay Video Competition and have demonstrated their ability to write, code, produce, and edit a finished product.
