The STEM XXI Network is hosting an invitation-only Summit on August 21, 2014 where diverse STEM stakeholders will seek to increase understanding of the current landscape of STEM programs in Texas, to identify gaps, and to propose new partnerships and strategies for 21st century STEM education in Texas and nationally. The stakeholders include STEM experts, afterschool program leaders, teachers, administrators, industry leaders, and funders in Texas.

This invitation-only day of presentations, networking, and discussions will focus on how innovative out-of-school time and informal learning programs can strengthen STEM education in our schools and communities.
