Prepublication copy, uncorrected proofs APPENDIX A CONVOCATION AGENDA Arnold and Mabel Beckman Center - Irvine, CA February 9, 2014-February 11, 2014 Convocation Goals and Objectives 1. Define the problem…with more strategic, integrated approaches to STEM learning across learning platforms (informal, after-school, and formal) 2. Identify the challenges and opportunities…associated with developing a learning ecosystem 3. What are the key attributes and characteristics…for possible prototypes of strategic collaborations to move forward? 4. Disseminate the prototypes... for community uses 5. Secure attendee commitments…to work on these issues for the ensuing 18 months moving forward with plans of action Sunday, February 9 7:00 PM Irvine Marriott Registration and Reception (with light hors d’oeuvres and beverages) Catalina Room Monday, February 10 7:00 AM Hotel Entrance Shuttles depart for Beckman Center 7:20 AM Atrium & Dining Room Registration and Breakfast Buffet 8:30 AM Main Auditorium Welcoming Remarks Mike Town, (Organizing Committee Co-Chair), Redmond High School Gerald Solomon, Samueli Foundation, STEM Funders Network Jay Labov, National Research Council 8:40 AM Main Auditorium Presentation: Moving Forward with STEM Learning for All Children: What Will It Take?
