Website https://stem4innovation.tamu.edu
Purpose &
Participants
The United States is facing a crisis due to the shortage of young people pursuing STEM careers. STEM 4 Innovation is an outstanding one-and-a-half days of interactive experiential that provides 8 hours of valuable continuing education credit while exposing educators to STEM at a research one university. 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.
