Our goal is to provide professional development, follow-up support, and effective teaching strategies for the STEM educators of Region 16.  We offer a variety of training sessions at Region 16, but we can also customize trainings to meet specific district needs.

Welcome to the Region 16 Texas EcosySTEM project, powered by the Texas Education Agency.

Mission: To educate, promote, and prepare our students, parents, and educators with equitable STEM opportunities and STEM skill-sets necessary to be future-ready.

Vision: To provide quality solutions that build the capacity in STEM learning opportunities.

Learning Ecosystems provide the architecture for cross-sector learning, offering all young people access to STEM-rich learning environments so they can develop important skills and engagement in science, technology, engineering, and math throughout Pre-K-20. Strong STEM Learning Ecosystems feature dynamic collaborations among schools, out-of-school time programs, STEM expert institutions (such as museums, science centers, institutions of higher education and STEM professional associations), the private sector, community-based organizations, youth, and families.

The Connectory remains the largest, free, online directory connecting STEAM-rich program providers to families and the general public as well as like-minded organizations. Now, The Connectory has streamlined language, a new provider dashboard, and a new opportunity to reach options.
