2017 CA STEAM Symposium
  • Join us for our 5th annual California STEAM Symposium at Moscone West in San Francisco, December 10-11, 2017!


    The 2017 California STEAM Symposium (formerly the STEM Symposium) convenes nearly 3,000 educators from across California for ongoing rigorous, collaborative, and inspiring professional learning and resources to support high-quality science, technology, engineering, art, and math instruction for all students.


    The Symposium features world-class keynote speakers, more than 300 presentations, and opportunities to explore the latest in educational technology, hear from leaders in STEAM learning and industry, and meet with fellow educators.


    On the fifth anniversary of the Symposium, we are adding Art to become the California STEAM Symposium. The inclusion of Art recognizes the importance of braiding together Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math learning like the strands of a rope, so students gain the skills they need to succeed in the future.


    By providing students with a spark of inspiration through art and opportunities to express their creativity and individuality, students learn to think critically and flexibly as they investigate, collaborate, and innovate to apply design thinking to their work.
