What is the STEM Education Framework?
The STEM Framework provides stakeholders with the Texas STEM definition, the TEA’s theory of action, state level objectives, strategies to success, the STEM implementation models, researched based methods of instruction, and high-quality STEM indicators. Stakeholders will use this framework as a guiding document when creating their customized STEM programs. The STEM framework is intended to be used alongside other STEM tools from the toolkit. Definition STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) education is a method of hands-on teaching and learning where students learn to apply academic content by creatively solving real-world problems with innovative design-based thinking to prepare students for future career opportunities.
