Inspiring careers that improve lives

Texas Instruments and Sanford Health, a nationally renowned non-profit healthcare system, are collaborating to produce STEM Behind Health, a series of free activities for TI-Nspire™ technology. Each activity puts your students on the leading edge of medical research and challenges them to think critically about practical applications of science, technology, engineering and math. The activities present important STEM concepts in the context of real people coping with real diseases — a deeply meaningful perspective that can inspire students to pursue educations and careers that change lives for the better.

A deeply relevant look at STEM

Peter Balyta, Ph.D., president of Texas Instruments Education Technology, introduces STEM Behind Health, a series of TI-Nspire™ activities that encourage students to engage in the math and science of research into disease causes, treatments and potential cures.
