Symposium Schedule

The UC Davis C-STEM Center, Redlands Unified School District and partners will organize the  2023 C-STEM Symposium on March 14, 2023 in Redlands, California.  The theme of this year is Engaging and Empowering All Students to Excel in Math and CS.

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.
