CONNECTING STEM
PROFESSIONALS TO
EVERY STUDENT

We make it easy for STEM professionals to share
their expertise and experience with students through
both in-person and real-time, virtual connections

Welcome to Texas STEM Connections

Texas STEM Connections is a web-based tool that makes it easy for STEM professionals to connect with K-20 educators, classrooms, out of school time programs, and other volunteer opportunities. Professionals can share their skills and expertise to bring real-world, authentic learning opportunities to all our students helping to create the next generation of innovators. Through in-person matches and virtual sessions, professionals can help educators and program providers connect their students to the world of STEM. Together we can make a difference.

Texas STEM Connections is a collaboration led by the Texas Girls Collaborative Project and supported by many organizations interested in creating meaningful STEM connections and role model interactions for students including: Texas Partnership for Out of School Time, Informal Science Education Association of Texas, Greater Austin STEM Ecosystem, Central Texas Discover Engineering, The University of Texas at Austin K12 STEM Collaborative, and The University of Texas at Austin Women in Engineering Program

This project was made possible with support from Intel.
