One of our goals is to facilitate the development of preK-14 teachers into skilled educators with a depth pedagogical content knowledge in the sciences and/or mathematics through best practices in science and mathematics education reflective of cutting-edge research and national STEM education reform initiatives. To do this our department is providing resources that may be helpful to you in your research and in your classroom teaching.

National Girls Collaborative Project
The National Girls Collaborative Project™ (NGCP) is designed to reach girl-serving STEM organizations across the United States. Local collaboratives vary in focus areas and populations served and include higher education institutions, community-based organizations, private non-profits, but all work to increase gender equity in STEM fields.
Texas Girls Collaborative
SciGirls is a TV show and interactive Web site that transforms the way tween girls look at science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM).
FabFems (in progress)
The FabFems Project will be a cyber-learning platform that encourages mentoring, inquiry-based learning, and an interest in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics career pathways for girls.
Science Journalism Pathways to STEM Careers
The Science Journalism Pathways to STEM Careers project taps the digital practices and interests of middle school girls and uses them to provide insight and experience with science knowledge and careers.
The WaterBotics program provides students at the middle and high school levels with an opportunity to use LEGO Mindstorms™ and basic principles of physics and engineering to design, create, and test submersible robots that are able to complete a series of sophisticated underwater tasks.
STEM – General
TechREACH after school and summer programs engage underrepresented and low-income students in hands-on technology and science projects, fun creative challenges, and experiential field trip and role model visits.
