The United States is facing a crisis due to the shortage of young people pursuing STEM careers. Texas A&M University is committed to PK-12 education and partners with schools and out-of-school-time programs to provide cutting edge content and applications to inspire the next generation of scientists, engineers and mathematicians. We know that each educator impacts thousands of students in their career, so by working directly with PK-12 educators, administrators and counselors, we intend to increase the number of pathways that lead to STEM careers for our Texas youth.
STEM 4 Innovation focuses on providing Texas K-12 formal and informal educators, administrators and counselors ideas, strategies and resources to encourage more of their students to pursue careers in STEM. STEM 4 Innovation is an outstanding one-and-a-half days of interactive experiential learning that provides 8 hours of valuable continuing education credit while exposing educators to STEM at a research one university.
