Explore The Refugio Symposium
Nearly 100 years ago, the Refugio State Beach Education Center sat nestled amongst simple Beach cottages dotting Refugio cove along the channel coast of California.
Teachers Collaborating at Refugio State Beach
The new education center sat ready at 9:00 am equipped with pelts, skulls, microscopes, fossils, and so much more to showcase the stories and experiences to discover at Refugio State Beach.
CUE (formerly Computer Using Educators), collaborated with the PORTS team to assemble this team of innovative educators from local affiliate networks. Interim Executive Director Mike Vollmert and Director of Academic Innovation Joe Marquez both joined PORTS team members on the beach in-person to support collaborative design with teachers and document this amazing experience. With the support of CUE, we hope to continue offering passPORTS symposium’s all across the state! Sign up for our mailing list to learn more about symposiums happening near you!
