In this final webinar of the series, "Advancing STEM Education K-8 in California," Kelly Stuart, WestEd, moderates a presentation by Jeff Davis, California AfterSchool Network; Bernadette Chi, Lawrence Hall of Science; and Joan Bissell, California State University Chancellor’s Office.
There are 4,000 after-school programs operating in California serving children in grades K-8. This additional time adds the equivalent of 77 additional instructional days for students. This session focuses on the impact STEM and OST has demonstrated, including lessons learned from the 217 Jumpstart sites, and promising practices for that all sites could learn in implementing STEM. In addition to the aforementioned groups, this webinar is also targeted to schools, districts, states, policymakers,community-based organizations, and institutes of higher education.
This webinar series is hosted in partnership with 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 generous funding from the S.D. Bechtel, Jr. Foundation. The series focuses on high quality in school and out-of-school time approaches that are being used to expand science teaching and learning in California and is applicable to educators from across the nation involved in efforts to improve science education.
