Each year the School of Education provides professional development programs for teachers in STEM subjects. These programs help teachers integrate Common Core State Standards and Next Generation Science Standards into their teaching practices. These programs are offered in partnership with the Sacramento County Office of Education, and registration is done through their office. Look for STEM Academy sessions in summer 2017.
