The SRT-STEM Center offers regional STEM educators high quality programs that enable them to further their professional development and engage students with interesting, relevant, and meaningful STEM learning experiences.
The SRT-STEM center launched the inaugural year of the BEST robotics competition with a newly sanctioned hub called "Galveston BEST". We had seven teams sign up and participating in hub activities. This year’s competition was called "High Octane".
Teams and individuals interested in competition and/or workshops should contact Dr. Monique Micheaux at firstname.lastname@example.org or 281-935-7742.
Add a biotechnology twist to your life sciences and biology classroom curricula! Our one-week BLT Institute delivers a connected series of TEKS-aligned biotechnology content/activities suitable for Middle School Life Science through High School Advanced Biotechnology! Content and skills are gained through multimedia presentations and in-laboratory, hands-on application of techniques.
The LEGO® Education Academy offers professional development programs to ensure teachers get the most out of their investment in LEGO Education resources. All Academy facilitators are experienced classroom users of LEGO Education products and have completed an intensive training course where only the best receive official certification by LEGO Education. Academy workshops are also designed to enable teachers to better facilitate, rather than direct, student learning, thereby encouraging students to take a more active role in the learning process.
Of the thirty projected fastest-growing occupations through 2016, sixteen of them require substantial mathematics or science prepration. The Texas economy relies heavily on the energy, biomedical, space/electronics systems, and chemical industries, all of which require workers with strong science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) skills.
Rice University and the UTMB-Galveston Southeast Regional Texas STEM Center have teamed to provide 45 teachers with the experience, knowledge, and skills necessary to guide students through engineering design problems that integrate science and mathematics concepts and meet the new engineering TEKS standard.
The T-STEM Centers Coalition and Educate Texas are happy to invite you to participate in our Summer PBL Institute at UT Dallas.
