Event description


The CITEA conference is focused on helping technology educators with curriculum, connections, and camaraderie.


If you teach machining, welding, graphics, CAD, carpentry, automotive technology, wood technology, or engineering in a California K-12 system or community college this is the conference you should attend.

We are making a special effort this year to welcome high school teachers involved with engineering programs. We will have sessions to help those teachers integrate hands-on activities into their curriculum and learn what others are doing in the field. This is an excellent opportunity for these (and all teachers) to meet colleagues throughout the state who teach in their discipline.


  • Networking with colleagues throughout the state!
  • Curriculum Ideas & Demonstrations
  • Hands-on Demonstrations
  • Technical Sessions
  • Networking!

Come get something you can use in class on Monday.
