How important is science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) to students in Richardson ISD? Extremely important according to the Texas Instruments Foundation, as evidenced by the group’s $4.6-million grant announcement today at RISD’s Berkner High School.

Just as impressive as the dollar amount awarded is the impact it will have on students. More than 10,000 children in grades PreK-12 will benefit from the TI Foundation’s outreach. All of the 16 campuses within the Berkner High School feeder pattern will now experience the impact of “STEM for All.”

STEM for All

The Texas Instruments (TI) Foundation, Educate Texas and the Richardson Independent School District (RISD) announced a partnership to create a science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) feeder pattern within the Lloyd V. Berkner High School attendance zone, which includes 16 schools serving more than 10,000 students from 80 different countries. The TI Foundation will give $4.6 million over the next three years to Educate Texas, the public-private initiative of Communities Foundation of Texas, to work with RISD to implement a “STEM for All” concept. The intent is to reshape the teaching and learning of these subjects across all grade levels to better prepare students from pre-K through 12th grade within the Berkner feeder schools for postsecondary and workforce success.
