Externship Programs

The program increases educator experience within industries, strengthening curriculum and application. In a five-day professional development event, Alamo STEM Workforce Coalition connects teachers with industry experts to learn how math and science are applied in workforce settings. Our ultimate goal is to increase educator and student awareness of careers in the San Antonio area and for students to be better prepared for in-demand careers.
