A firm foundation in science, technology, engineering and mathematics is essential for future career success. The U.S. Department of Labor projects there will be more than 2 million STEM-related job openings by 2014, but the number of Americans graduating with degrees in those subjects is declining. Texas Instruments is working with educators to bridge that gap, empowering them with tools and techniques to reach students more effectively.
In addition, the T3 International Conference will offer several sessions focused on NASA initiatives that allow mathematics and science students to use TI technology to solve problems based on real human space flight applications. NASA’s "Exploring Space Through Math" and "Math and Science @ Work" projects developed in partnership with Texas Instruments present students with rich experiences in real-world mathematics and science learning.
"The T3 International Conference provides an opportunity for education professionals to come together and learn from each other," Mujica said. "Teachers are harnessing technology in new and powerful ways to create 21st century teaching and learning environments for mathematics and science. Working together, we can help our schools, our teachers and our students to remain innovative and globally competitive."
