Workforce Development

TRTF forged a partnership with Communities in Schools of San Antonio (CIS-SA) to prepare the next generation of employees in bioscience and healthcare. Step Into STEM is a career awareness program designed to inspire middle school students to choose STEM education to prepare for future STEM careers, like those coming soon to the Innovation Superhub and District.

The 2021 program provided students on the Eastside with an opportunity to participate in stimulating activities to enhance career awareness.

2021 Career Awareness Program

  • Curriculum: In-class Science lessons with hands-on activities and career video
  • Science Workshop: Full day of interactive, hands-on activities and mentoring at VelocityTX Innovation Center.
  • STEM Family Night: Interactive STEM activity stations for students and parents.

TRTF plans for inclusive workforce development programs to develop into advanced educational opportunities such as internships, mentorships, and certifications.
