The California Science Education Conference offers the most comprehensive science education workshop program in the state. Workshops are 90-minute educational sessions. Many workshops are hands-on and led by other classroom teachers along with other science education professionals. Workshops are open to all conference registrants on a first-come, first-served basis. Workshops will be held at the Pasadena Convention Center and the Sheraton Pasadena Hotel. All workshops presented are aligned to/support one or more California State Adopted Standards. This includes the California Next Generation Science Standards (CA-NGSS), California Common Core State Standards (CCSS) in English Language Arts (ELA) and Math, and the English Language Development (ELD) Standards.
A current list of workshops scheduled for presentation at the conference is now available. In the coming weeks, CSTA will be adding a suite of exhibitor workshops offered by companies and organizations exhibiting at the conference. About six weeks before the conference, CSTA will make available a full service conference app that will serve as the electronic program book for the event. This app will allow you to save your favorite workshop to your schedule, connect with your fellow attendees, and bookmark exhibitors you want to connect with.
Workshops are highly interactive and often involve hands-on investigations, group work, and fascinating demonstrations. You’re likely to receive free classroom materials, lesson plans, units, handouts, and other valuable resources. Access to all workshops is included with your conference registration.
Workshops are categorized by several variables including grade level and type of science (including Environmental Literacy and Engineering). As well as the following emphases:
