The Time to Make Texas a "State of STEM" is Now!

The new K-12 Science TEKS and K-8 Technology Applications TEKS incorporate key components of the Texas STEM Education Framework. Educators using these TEKS are helping to prepare ALL students for future career opportunities!

Did you know?

From 2020 to 2030...

  • Texas will add over 620,000 STEM occupations

  • Of the 20 STEM occupations projected to add the most jobs, 

    • 17 require no more than a Bachelor’s degree, and

    • 11 pay more than $100,000 a year for experienced employees. (Source)

Starting in 2024-2025…

  • All students K-8 are expected to, as part of the new Technology Applications TEKS:

    • explore computational thinking concepts, including decomposition, abstraction, pattern recognition and algorithms.

    • use innovative design processes to solve authentic problems.

  • All students K-12 are expected to, as part of the new Science TEKS:

    • use engineering practices to design solutions to problems. 

    • investigate STEM careers.

    • use recurring themes and concepts to make connections across disciplines (K-8).

Come learn from the STEM educators who are already doing and supporting this work in classrooms, camps, libraries, and museums across Region 13 and beyond. Walk away with free resources, rich hands-on experiences and valuable contacts that support both the new TEKS and TEA's Texas STEM Education Framework.

Do your part to help prepare ALL students for future career opportunities by making Texas a "State of STEM"!
