We are here for you as you navigate the transition to distance instruction and learning. Last week we launched our Lunch Bites Webinar series and invite you to join us each week to explore how to bring STEAM and hands-on learning to your students and community.

California STEAM Symposium Update
In the midst of constant upheaval, we want you to know you can still rely on #CASTEAM20 in the months ahead. Like you, our daily lives are changing, uncertainties abound, and our personal and professional connections are more valuable than ever. With that in mind, it is our vision to continue supporting you by activating and building our shared STEAM network throughout 2020.
Even as the news changes, what remains constant is the need to grow professionally, feel connected to each other, and share resources which can positively impact current and future circumstances. Together, we are resilient, innovative, and collaborative. We at #CASTEAM20 seek to serve as a beacon of light for our amazing community.
CDE Foundation is proud to have convened so many educators over the years and we are hopeful we can gather in person this December 7-8. We are moving forward with plans to host everyone in Long Beach, while recognizing we need to remain flexible and be ready to shift to a virtual venue if necessary. We know that adapting to “new normals” will yield unprecedented, creative ways to advance together as an education community to benefit all of our students. We are committed to embarking on this journey with all of you and appreciate your partnership as we continue to adjust to your needs!
