TASA Announcements

  • Special STEM Event for K-12 Leaders, Especially Campus Principals!
    Join us for a one-day leadership forum sponsored by Chevron and hosted by TASA that will inspire and inform K-12 leaders — especially campus principals — responsible for building the up-and-coming STEM workforce. While Texas offers STEM endorsements, STEM magnets, and STEM choice schools, EVERY graduate needs and deserves STEM skills. Using the science of learning to investigate creativity, communications, analytical thinking and quantitative reasoning, all students become STEM learners. The forum will be held Thursday, January 11, at the Nabisco Innovation Center in Houston, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., followed by a 6:15 p.m. dinner. Learn more and register today!
