We partner with organizations in the U.S. that have a track record of successfully shifting student attitudes and achievements in STEM. We invest in developing and recognizing effective teachers, and also sponsor programs that expand opportunities for under-represented groups in STEM fields, including female, Hispanic and African American students. Our Education Technology business has an active Teachers Teaching with Technology (T3) program that allows teachers to share ideas and inspire each other with effective teaching practices that revitalize their classrooms.
TI corporate and the TI Foundation fund a number of “Power of STEM Education” (POSE) initiatives in Dallas and across the U.S. where we have major design and manufacturing presence, including Texas, California and Maine.
Grants to train Dallas Independent School District middle school science teachers on methods for engaging their students.
Other POSE initiatives include grants to nonprofit partners and educators in Santa Clara, Calif., and the surrounding Bay area, as well as in Maine. Regardless of location, POSE giving is focused on collaborative ways to improve student success and teaching effectiveness in STEM education.
Through the Junkins Scholars program, we offer college scholarships to National Merit Program finalists who are children of TI employees. Named for former TI chairman, president and CEO Jerry R. Junkins, the program has awarded more than 367 scholarships worth $1.3 million since 1996.
We reward teachers and schools making significant advancements in STEM education, including:
One way to equip Generation STEM and a STEM-capable workforce is through supporting major robotics competitions with organizations such as FIRST, VEX and BEST.
Why we support robotics competitions
Robotics competitions are a fun, engaging way for students to apply their passion for STEM subjects.
Not only do students get to creatively imagine and build robots, they experience team work, develop technical proficiencies and apply problem-solving skills needed for future STEM careers.
