STEM School Certification

The Texas STEM School Certification recognizes schools as a model of effective teaching and learning. The STEM Certification process provides a “roadmap” for schools to successfully implement a STEM education plan at the local level. Our curated tools and resources define the attributes necessary for a school to create a comprehensive STEM learning environment for its students. A school that receives Texas STEM School Certification will receive a banner and be recognized (and invited to share promising practices) during the Annual Texas STEM Conference.  All PK-12 Schools are eligible to apply for STEM Designation.

STEM Conference

Each year, educators and STEM advocates gather for the Texas STEM Conference, one of  Texas’s premier STEM education conferences. Presented by the Texas STEM Coalition, this three-day event of all things STEM includes breakout sessions presented by educators who generously share innovative classroom strategies. Attendees come from each of STEM’s varied disciplines, but they are united by their passion for introducing students of all ages to the phenomenal world of STEM.
