The Round Rock STEM-for-All Partnership is a public/private initiative that will combine a workforce research initiative with a well-integrated portfolio of STEM engagement and educator professional development opportunities for learners of all ages in the Texas 31st Congressional District. Research data will be collected and analyzed from area employers and education providers concerning current and future workforce needs to identify gaps and to promote collaborative planning to better meet local needs. The STEM engagement and educator professional development collaborative includes summer engineering camps for elementary students, STEM Internship Programs for secondary students, monthly STEM nights at area schools, summer engineering institutes for pre-service teachers from the Texas State Round Rock campus, Saturday teacher professional development sessions for K-12 teachers, a speaker series for the community, and STEM exhibits and interactive activities at area community events.
