Welcome University Faculty
The preparation of STEM teachers for the nation’s elementary, middle, and high schools seems to yield the greatest benefit when performed as a collaborative effort between and among faculty from departments of Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics, and Teacher Education. The dedication and work of these faculty in the education of STEM teachers is critical to the ultimate NASA Education goal of preparing, inspiring, exciting, encouraging, and nurturing the young minds of today who will be the workforce of tomorrow.

This site, hosted by the Texas State STEM Engagement & Educator Professional Development Collaborative (NASA STEM EPDC), serves to give you, the university faculty member, a place to learn about the latest developments in ways to access and use the many NASA resources in your teaching of future STEM teachers. This NASA STEM EPDC site refers often to information on the nasa.gov site.
