The Google in Education California Summit will be in the heart of Silicon Valley at Sequoia High School on July 13 & 14, 2013. Located just two blocks from downtown Redwood City, the school is a 10-minute drive from Stanford University and a 15-minute drive to the famous Googleplex, Google's corporate headquarters in Mountain View. Sequoia High School is a California Distinguished School, offering the International Baccalaureate Diploma and serving a diverse population of 2000 students. In 2012, Sequoia High School hosted a US Secretary of Education Arne Duncan for an edtech forum as part of the kickoff for his cross-country back-to-school bus tour. The beautiful and high-tech campus is an ideal location for a Google in Education Summit, and the planning committee is thrilled to produce the event hosted by a public school.
