Reinvigorate your teaching practice at the 6th annual California STEAM Symposium at the Long Beach Convention Center on October 28th and 29th. The California STEAM Symposium is a place for teachers to be inspired by and to utilize the event’s high-quality science, technology, engineering, art and math instruction resources. In 2017, the Symposium added art to that list of resources, recognizing the importance of encouraging creativity and self-expression in effective student participation in an otherwise purely technical curriculum.
