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 Palm Springs Convention Center and the Renaissance Palm Springs 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.
Workshops are highly interactive and often involve hands-on investigations, group work, and fascinating demonstrations.
