This program, designed by UT’s Environmental Science Institute, brings current UT graduate student experts into a local teachers’ classrooms to help them develop new, engaging activities and lesson plans that promote K-12 STEM education. For the 2018-19 year, our team is partnering with the Environmental Science Institute to develop curricula that introduces Planet Texas 2050 initiatives to Central Texas students. Elementary, middle, and high school students will learn about the challenges our state faces and the kinds of new discoveries and ideas that can help us be prepared.
