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. For more information to join our field testing, contact Nate Fairchild.

WOMEN IN STEM CONFERENCE
POSTPONED


When AAUW Redding and the conference leadership undertook this event for 2022, we committed to carefully watching the conditions of COVID and how they would impact its implementation. Our conference serves girls from across the north state, and out of an abundance of caution for their safety as well as the safety of our presenters, volunteers and members, we made this difficult decision in these unprecedented times to postpone the event until a future date, possibly 2023. 

AAUW’s mission is to Advance Equity for Women and Girls Through Advocacy, Education, Philanthropy, and Research and we look forward to organizing future Women in STEM conferences as one of our demonstrations of this mission. We will share with you our plans for our next conference and will hope for your participation.

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 survey!

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.

Have Questions? 

Attend an Overview/Orientation Meeting on January 26, 2022 from 4 - 5:30 pm through zoom. Register in Advance HERE. Link to the flyer.

  • What computer science and CS pathways are and how to build a pathway in your community.
  • The contents, format, schedule and expectations associated with the project's professional learning model.
  • CS standards and available free and low-cost curriculum.
  • Participation benefits and expectations, including stipends for participation in 2 years of free professional learning.

Additional information about CS4NorCal can be found by going to the CS4NorCal website: www.cs4norcal.org or CS4NorCal’s FAQs. 

This is an exciting opportunity to prepare our students for high-wage, high-demand Computer Science and STEM careers.
