Science /STEAM

Science Students


The Contra Costa County Office of Education supports districts, coaches and classroom teachers in implementing the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) in TK-12 classrooms. CCCOE provides learning opportunities to improve science education for all students. Programs include science workshops, network meetings, and customized programs.

Our services include

  • Facilitating NGSS implementation
  • Supporting content development
  • Developing NGSS units with teacher cohorts
  • Facilitating the CCCOE Science Subcommittee, a countywide collaboration with representatives from districts. 


The main goal of Contra Costa County Office of Education's (CCCOE) Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics (STEAM) initiative is to engage all students in authentic learning experiences aligned with the California Standards. We strive to support districts with professional learning opportunities, instructional resources and regional collaboration as they develop their own STEAM programs that prepare all students for future careers.
