Ten80 Education, a national program to promote and inspire students in STEM, will be making its debut in Houston on May 13, 2015, with the help of The Bernard Harris Foundation. The organization will be hosting a free Expo and STEMFest that day for Houston-area high-school students .

The event will provide students of all subject interests a scope into STEM and enhance STEM students’ knowledge in the subject in a creative way. Participants will engage in a one-day student leadership challenge and participate in workshops featuring robotics, engineering, and innovation. The event is free of charge.

Schools that sign up to attend the Expo with a minimum of 25 students are eligible to receive a National STEM League (NSL) sponsorship (Year 1 Kit & Registration or Year 2 Registration). Select schools will also receive a Ten80 Racing Challenge curriculum worth $4,000 sponsored by the U.S. Army. This curriculum may be implemented as a course or an afterschool program during the 2015-2016 year. The curriculum includes specialized pathways in auto-race engineering, robotics, enterprise, and data-drive design projects.

The deadline to register is Friday, April 10, 2015. Principals can register their schools at
