AggieStem wins TxDLA award

UnknownAggie STEM, a joint program between the College of Engineering and the College of Education, was selected as the recipient of the 2016 Texas Distance Learning Association (TxDLA) Award for Outstanding Commitment to Excellence and Innovation by a 4-Year Higher Education Institution.

The award was based on the team’s innovation in providing both synchronous and asynchronous online STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) professional development for teachers. This includes access for teachers in locations across Texas to view experienced instructors working with secondary students to facilitate STEM project-based learning at Texas A&M University. These opportunities for teachers complement Aggie STEM's work in face-to-face venues on the university campus and on individual K-12 campuses. 

Aggie STEM began in 2006 as a partnership with Texas A&M and the Dallas ISD. It has since expanded its services to reach numerous public school districts and charter schools across Texas. Aggie STEM is dedicated to providing Texas educators with the tools necessary for advancements in science, technology, engineering and mathematics.
