Dear Friends & Colleagues,       

The California STEM Learning Network is pleased to invite you to the third annual California STEM Summit: Transforming Ideas Into Action, presented by Chevron.

We are putting together an outstanding program for this year's Summit and are pleased to announce that Sugata Mitra has agreed to be a keynote speaker.  Dr. Mitra is Professor of Educational Technology at the School of Education, Communication and Language Sciences at Newcastle University, UK.  His famed "Hole in the Wall" experiment placed internet-connected PCs in urban and rural areas of India and filmed children as they played and taught themselves how to navigate the computer. As a result of this research, Dr. Mitra found that through curiosity and shared peer interest, children are able to teach themselves.

He will draw on his experiences and wisdom to help us think about how we can transform California's STEM education system to ensure that all students graduate with the necessary skills and knowledge to succeed in education, work and their daily lives.

In addition, attendees at the California STEM Summit 2012 will:
  • Learn about critical issues related to advancing STEM education  
  • Generate support for key STEM initiatives and programming
  • Discuss the new Common Core Standards and Next Generation Science Standards and how they can advance STEM in and outside the classroom 
Register early for this game-changing two-day summit and be sure to get your space as seating is limited. 
Please help us get the word out by sharing this information
with other partners and colleagues in your network. If you would like to learn more about how you or your organization can participate as a sponsor or volunteer, please contact
or event coordinator at

I look forward to seeing you in sunny San Diego this October.
