STEM Symposium

NOTICE as of 3/6/20 11:13 PM - We apologize for this last-minute notice. Given the City of San Francisco's current recommendations to protect public health, we will be postponing the SFSU STEM Teacher Symposium.  The City of San Francisco has advised "social distancing" as a means of reducing the occasions when large numbers of people come together and potentially are exposed to the virus that is circulating in our community. Dozens of events are now cancelled in our city and some sister events on campus will also cancel as of now. Further information on these guidelines can be found here: While we understand that both presenters and attendees have made efforts to spend this day together in teaching and learning, we do not feel it is wise to risk any unneeded exposure to the COVID-19 virus. Again, we apologize for the late notice.  We thank you for your patience and look forward to re-scheduling the STEM Teacher Symposium in the near future. - STEM Symposium Leadership

EQUITY & The STEM Classroom

Join us for the first annual Center for Science and Mathematics Education STEM Teacher Symposium. This event is a collaboration between the College of Science and Engineering and the Graduate College of Education. Educators from the SF Bay Area will be teaching workshops, leading panels and discussion groups about best practices and innovative techniques to further equitize science and mathematics teaching in grades K-12. Come and join us for a day of learning! The first 150 attendees will be guaranteed a $50 honorarium for attendance*, or professional development hours for in-service teachers. Undergraduates who anticipate entering a credential program at SFSU will be eligible for additional funding to support their teacher preparation. Lunch will be provided for all registered attendees.
