The Noyce en la Frontera program announced the 5th annual Science of STEM Literacy conference on Monday, July 10, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on the Southwest Texas Junior College/Sul Ross State University campus in Uvalde. The conference is free and open to the public.
STEM stands for science, technology, engineering and mathematics.
All current and future STEM educators, leaders, and interested students are invited to participate in educational activities such as how to integrate best practices for STEM literacy and education in the classroom. In addition, representatives from the National Solar Observatory are excited to meet participants as they will partner with the SWTJC/SRSU Noyce scholar program to plan events around the 2023 and 2024 solar eclipse events.
Speakers and presenters include our own Noyce scholars and mentors, former Noyce Scholar Lama Loubani of the University of Houston, Dr. Angela Karen Speck of the University of Texas at San Antonio, Dr. Tandra Tyler-Woods of the University of North Texas, and many more.
