    Texas STEM Education Definition

    STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) education is a method of hands-on teaching and learning where students learn to apply academic content by creatively solving real-world problems with innovative design-based thinking to prepare students for future career opportunities.

    Texas STEM Education Framework

    The STEM Education Framework provides the definition, theory of action, and objectives for implementing STEM education across Texas. The framework includes strategies for success, differentiated STEM implementation models, research-based methods of instruction, and high-quality STEM indicators. Stakeholders can use this framework as a guide when creating their customized STEM programs. Additional resources are provided in the STEM toolkit and are to be used in conjunction with the STEM framework. Click the button below to view the STEM Framework.
