STEM Programs at the San Joaquin County Office of Education provides professional development for teachers, administrators, technology coordinators and others, focused on Science, Technology, Engineering and Math. The Office of STEM’s mission is to spark inquiry related to the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), National Educational Technology Standards (NETS) and the California Science Frameworks. Districts inside and outside San Joaquin County, community colleges and universities in the region work with the Office of STEM to promote science, technology, engineering and math as core subjects for all grade levels. The office also serves as liaison between the California Department of Education and other national/regional STEM-oriented agencies. Our programs are designed to promote the improvement of STEM education and teacher leadership.
STEM Programs at San Joaquin County Office of Education serves as a regional resource for teachers. Through our partners in education, business and industry, we hope to connect teachers with people that help make curriculum relevant and ensure that students are learning skills that can build toward successful articulation from grade to grade, school to school and beyond.
Dinner with a Scientist 2019
Dinner with a Scientist is an evening of inspiration and insight for middle and high school students who may be interested in entering the field of science, technology, engineering or math (STEM). Students will get the rare opportunity to spend 15-20 minutes with four different STEM professionals of their choice. STEM volunteers will discuss their professions and answer any questions the students may have.
For $100, a teacher can bring a group of three students. Along with spending time with various STEM professionals, the evening will also include a science challenge, appetizers, dinner and dessert.
The event will take place on Thursday, November 14th, 2019 from 5-8pm. It will be held at the San Joaquin County Office of Education, Wentworth Education Center, located at 2707 Transworld Drive in Stockton. Limited scholarships are available.
Register your team today!
We are also looking for STEM professional volunteers to host a table. Please email Bret States if you know of anyone that would like to participate.
