¡Ciencias! – Bilingual STEM outreach program


This innovative program is designed to encourage Hispanic K-12 students to pursue science through engaging events and activities with role models who are thriving in college and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) fields. Mirroring the lively atmosphere of Hot Science – Cool Talks events, the ¡Ciencias! mission is to expand engagement in STEM activities on the UT campus to the underrepresented, Spanish-speaking community of central Texas. In addition, ¡Ciencias! customized bilingual interactive science content is brought directly to our target audience in libraries and community centers in neighborhoods with a significant number of Hispanic patrons.
