2021 C-STEM Conference

Conference Program

Accelerated Learning of Math and CS/STEAM

Join the annual Conference on Integrated Computing and STEM Education on November 29th – December 2nd, 2021 virtually organized by UC Davis C-STEM Center and its  partners. The theme of this 11th anniversary conference is “Accelerated Learning of Math and CS/STEAM“.

C-STEM is a UC Approved Educational Preparation Program for Undergraduate Admission for all UC campuses with UCOP A-G Program Status. Since the lockdown due to the pandemic, C-STEM has transitioned to support our K-12 teachers and their students for both classroom and distance learning CS and STEAM with virtual and hardware robots.

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 practice, and experience on transforming math education with hands-on coding and robotics, especially on closing the math achievement gap for at-risk students and English language learners.

You will learn from the district and school leaders their strategies on how to integrate hands-on computing and robotics into regular math curriculum district and school wide. You will also learn from both experienced and new C-STEM teachers  on how to get started with the C-STEM program and have successfully impacted students from ALL backgrounds through C-STEM Robotics, GIRL/GIRL+ Camps, and the level-playing-field RoboPlay Competition.

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.
