In partnership with the California Department of Education’s Expanded Learning Division and the California AfterSchool Network, the California STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math) Symposium co-hosts are excited to announce the virtual 2021 Expanding Learning Opportunities with STEAM Back-To-School Pre-Conference on Wednesday, September 1, 2021, presented by Chevron.
This exciting partnership builds on our community belief that STEAM learning happens everywhere and at any time of the day. Throughout the event, we will explore opportunities for collaboration between community-based organizations and the TK–16 system. We are excited to support our education community as we all strategically plan to use the monumental education budgets focused on early education, social-emotional learning, teacher pipeline, and expanded learning. Participants will also learn more about the new Expanded Learning Opportunities Program established in July 2021 by Assembly Bill 130.
