Science Enrichment Opportunities
STARS is primarily for science teachers, but there are opportunities now for students as well. (Science Teacher Access to Resources at Southwestern) was developed in 1991 to improve the quality of science education in North Central Texas. At that time, a partnership was formed to make available to middle and high school science teachers some of the vast educational resources of UT Southwestern Medical Center. Since its inception, the STARS Program has grown to serve over 6,000 teachers and 35,000 students in 2,000 schools in the Dallas/Fort Worth area. The scope of STARS has steadily expanded to include over 20 separate programs and projects ,which are available, free of charge, to teachers and students in the state of Texas.
Lyle Engineering Camp for Girls is a week-long, half-day program designed for girls entering 7th-12th grade in the fall of 2014. Girls explore engineering through hands-on, interactive projects which show how engineering is related to social concerns, community interest and individual development.
