Something’s happening in Lancaster Independent School district (LISD) that could transform the way schools across the country teach science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). Educate Texas, a public-private initiative of Communities Foundation of Texas, has joined forces with LISD and Texas Instruments Foundation to profoundly change STEM education, benefitting students at every grade level.
Using proven best practices and a grant from Texas Instruments Foundation of $4.8 million, the STEM model will help ensure that graduates are armed with the knowledge and skills to succeed in college and beyond. Long—term, our collaboration is preparing the workforce for the future.
Thanks to a bond that unites visionary educators and philanthropists, Texas is well on its way.
|“We believe our efforts will be transformative and will ensure our students leave with more than a diploma they will also have choices and opportunities.”
