Summer “STEAM” Camp has educators learning in the heat

Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Technology (STEAM) was the focus as teachers, professional development specialists, a board member, the superintendent and other district officials spent a few days this week enhancing their knowledge in the heat of Palm Desert.
 

Approximately 100 educators represented Moreno Valley Unified School District at the California League of Schools Summer STEAM Camp that focused on a variety of exciting ways to engage students in STEAM subjects.

 

Attendees saw a squid dissection, made sailboats, learned how to use a green screen and plenty more during the two-day conference that focused on professional development in STEAM areas for educators.

 

The subjects covered at the conference were designed to help our graduates get ready for the next step after high school. “STEAM is something that can help students make connections between their different subject areas.  It can allow for deeper understanding of the content and applications to real world problems, and it is something that can help students go into career avenues or pathways in college,” stated Professional Development Specialist Stacy Lerma.

 

MVUSD attendees were also able to share some experiences with STEAM from our schools. Several Professional Development Specialists, teachers, and coordinators presented various sessions, from the implementation of STEAM ideas to how the arts can be integrated across STEAM subjects.

 

We are also proud to announce that our Superintendent, Dr. Martinrex Kedziora was selected as chairman of the California League of Schools. We’re thrilled to have our leader in such a prominent position with all California schools!
