The UT Center for STEM Education launches the Texas Teacher Externships Program and announces RFA
The UT Center for STEM Education will be accepting applications for the Texas Teachers Externships Program (TEX2) beginning November 30, 2017. Funded by the Texas Education Agency, TEX2 will provide resources and support to offer teachers across the state of Texas experiences interacting directly with industry leaders in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) fields.
The Center will award $20,000 grants to up to 31 selected organizations to develop programs that provide opportunities for classroom teachers to learn about local industry trends, needs, and opportunities that they can then bring back to their classrooms to enhance instruction and, ultimately, student learning and achievement.
