Texas Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (T-STEM)

T-STEM logo

The Texas Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (T-STEM) initiative creates secondary schools that focus on the subjects most needed for career opportunities in Texas. Designed to improve the quality of teaching as well as the academic performance of students, T-STEM serves to prepare Texas high school students — especially first-generation and historically underserved students — for success in college and the workforce. T-STEM engages students and exposes them to innovation and design in real-world contexts. The course of study meets admission requirements for competitive colleges and aims to ensure that students will have the STEM qualifications needed to keep pace with the job market.

 School Profile


Contrary to popular belief, Lorem Ipsum is not simply random text. It has roots in a piece of classical Latin literature from 45 BC, making it over 2000 years old. Richard McClintock, a Latin professor at Hampden-Sydney College in Virginia, looked up one of the more obscure Latin words, consectetur, from a Lorem Ipsum passage, and going through the cites of the word in classical literature, discovered the undoubtable source. Lorem Ipsum comes from sections 1.10.32 and 1.10.33 of "de Finibus Bonorum et Malorum" (The Extremes of Good and Evil) by Cicero, written in 45 BC. This book is a treatise on the theory of ethics, very popular during the Renaissance. The first line of Lorem Ipsum, "Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet..", comes from a line in section 1.10.32.

The standard chunk of Lorem Ipsum used since the 1500s is reproduced below for those interested. Sections 1.10.32 and 1.10.33 from "de Finibus Bonorum et Malorum" by Cicero are also reproduced in their exact original form, accompanied by English versions from the 1914 translation by H. Rackham.
