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 Sacramento Convention Center and the Sheraton Grand 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.
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.
CSTA is pleased to have partnered with several organizations and teacher professional development providers to offer workshops as part of our Featured Conference Partner strand.
