STEM in Action: Start With Prepared Leaders, Teachers and Engaged Students
In light of the current situation, we have made the difficult decision to postpone all of the leadership summits until the fall. Once the new details have been confirmed, we will post them here and notify prior registrants by email.
In the meantime, we are aware that many school districts are transitioning to remote learning. In support of these efforts, TI is offering free resources, including free software licenses and a free app for iPad®.
For any questions, please contact Wendy Peel, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 214.567.6705.
iPad is a trademark of Apple, Inc., registered in the U.S. and other countries.
Registration for this summit is closed, as we have reached maximum capacity. However, if you wish to participate, please contact Wendy Peel at email@example.com to be placed on the waiting list.
Join us for a high-level discussion about STEM in Action, legislative updates and school finance in Texas. During the summit, we will discuss supporting teacher development and preparing for changes taking shape in the classroom around technology and STEM initiatives, including computer science, CTE and coding.
There is no cost to attend, and a networking breakfast and luncheon are included.

Keynote address: WeTeach_CS and You Can Too!
Computer science jobs are the #1 source of new wages in the U.S., but the U.S. Department of Labor predicts that there will be 1 million open jobs in computing by 2024 due to a lack of qualified U.S. candidates. While computer science enrollment has grown significantly in Texas, only 3% of high school students currently complete a CS course, and most courses fail to represent the diversity of students in the state. If your district is looking to build a diverse K–12 Computer Science Pathway, this presentation is just for you. We will focus on resources for improving the CS pipeline in your school/district from elementary to high school and professional development opportunities that will help your school train and certify more CS teachers.
