Register for the Expanding Science Learning Opportunities During Out-of-School Time webinar.
In this final webinar of the series, "Advancing STEM Education K-8 in California," presenters will discuss after-school programs that are building partnerships and focusing on education in science, technology, engineering, and technology (STEM).
Presenters also will highlight California’s research findings, lessons learned, and promising practices based on 200 school site visits.
WestEd's Kelly Stuart will moderate a presentation by Jeff Davis, California AfterSchool Network; Bernadette Chi, Lawrence Hall of Science; Traci Wierman, Lawrence Hall of Science; and Joan Bissell, California State University Chancellor’s Office.
Four thousand after-school programs are operating in California serving students, grades K-8. This additional time equals 77 extra instructional days for students.
This webinar focuses on the impact that STEM and out-of-school time has demonstrated.
Presenters will discuss lessons learned from the 217 Jumpstart sites, and promising practices that all sites could learn in implementing STEM learning and education.
The target audience for this webinar includes schools, districts, states, policymakers, community-based organizations, and institutions of higher education.
The three-part webinar series is hosted by the Center for the Future of Teaching and Learning (CFTL) at WestEd and California State University. It builds off two recent reports, Untapped Potential: The Status of Middle School Science Education in California and High Hopes — Few Opportunities: The Status of Elementary Science in Education, produced by CFTL with funding from the S.D. Bechtel, Jr. Foundation.
The series focuses on school and out-of-school time approaches that are being used to expand science teaching and learning in California. It is applicable to educators nationwide involved in efforts to improve science education.
