What We Do

The Texas STEM Centers were created with a multi-faceted focus including disseminating proven STEM practices across the state, supporting the T-STEM Academies and the State math and science initiatives, developing pathways to increase the number of available quality STEM teachers, creating STEM professional development and curriculum, and researching practices in the field. In order to effectively accomplish these initiatives, the 7 centers need to function as a "single" statewide center with multiple locations and entry points to develop a coordinated approach.
