Do STEM and you can do anything!
Events for North State Students
KidSTEM is a STEM event for all 4th Graders that generates equity and promotes growth mindsets in the areas of STEM through a one-day semi-competitive event. It is designed to motivate students in elementary school, celebrate their STEM successes, and increase STEM knowledge and skills.

Designed for 4th Graders
Events for North State Teachers
CS4NorCal is a unique 5-year regional research and innovation project sponsored by the California Small School Districts' Association (SSDA) to create K-12 computer science pathways in small rural schools in 6 northern California counties: Glenn, Lassen, Modoc, Plumas, Shasta and Siskiyou.
Through 2024-2025, CS4NorCal is an opportunity for education leaders from county offices of education, districts and schools to investigate and design implementation models to integrate the 2018 state Computer Science standards into their educational programs and provide students with access to a core subject of a well-rounded education.
Since it is a five year program, schools may be ready to jump on right away or may be interested to join a year, two or three down the road. If you think there may be interest at any point in time during the life of the grant, I'd encourage your school to fill out the interest form!
Potential participants will be invited to a project orientation on January 25, 26 and 27 from 3:30-5 p.m. There is no cost to participate in the grant; participating teachers will receive 10 to 20 days of compensated professional learning and access to nationally validated computer science curriculum.
This is an exciting opportunity to prepare our students for high-wage, high-demand Computer Science and STEM careers.
