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.
With a projected 1.9 million deficit in STEM jobs by 2026 while simultaneously ranking last among states with STEM expectations, action was imperative. Across the state, ecosystems were formed in 2019 to address this dilemma. The ESC 12 STEM Ecosystem, located in Waco, Texas, comprises stakeholders from informal and formal educators, non-profits, industry, government, and higher education, providing a robust, rich perspective.
The Region 12 EcosySTEM Design Team is excited to host a FREE community event in Waco at the Mayborn Museum! Geared towards attendees of all ages, take part in this event to find out what STEM is all about through fun, interactive and engaging activities, demonstrations, and explorations from a number of our partners. #R12STEM
