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.
