The VCSTEAMN Colloquium # 3 on SEARCH was a great success. Mike Vollmert, our Director of Technology, pinch hit for Keynote speaker Andrew Schwab who was ill, and used Andrew’s presentation to set the stage for an excellent evening. We examined SEARCH as a 21st century Literacy, we learned some new Google SEARCH skills, and then we collaborated on a scavenger hunt to find the answers to some SEARCH Challenges. Educators from across the county were in attendance and we thank all for being there. VCSTEAMN is an emerging entity that we hope grows far beyond the Rio School District to offer educators, community and business partners opportunities to establish Ventura County as a premiere location for STEAM education and employment.
STEAM is the integration and connections between Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics.
