To promote higher education throughout the state of Texas to students, families, and communities through engaging presentations and activities that are culturally relevant, as well as STEM oriented.
Join in partnership with schools K-12 to increase the STEM outreach to communities, with focus on 8th, 9th, and 10th graders.
This project is funded by a $5.1 million dollar grant from the U.S. Department of Education under the Hispanic-Serving Institutions (HSI) STEM and Articulation Programs (Title III, Part F, Section 371).
The demand for skilled workers in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) is closely linked to global competitiveness. In today’s global society, STEM means job; at a minimum 85% of jobs require STEM skills.There is a lack of gender and ethnic diversity of students entering STEM educational programs. This presents additional challenges in STEM career fields. Using creativity and innovation to address these challenges is critical to meeting this demand of skilled workers.
Want HSI-STEM to Visit Your School?
Although the HSI-STEM office is located on the Angelo State University campus, we do not recruit for ASU. We only seek to encourage students to continue their education and consider a college degree. Presentations are completely FREE; all we ask from you is the time with your students and a venue. All presentations can be tailored to your specifics needs and we can present to multiple grades at once. Contact Angie Fraga, HSI-STEM Outreach Coordinator, at firstname.lastname@example.org or (325) 486-6400 for more information.
