SACOT On The Hill

SACOT On The Hill

On February 19, a handful of our VorTX 3735 students traveled to Austin to participate in the SACOT on the Hill event. SACOT, the STEM Advocacy Conference of Texas, is an organization created to help spread STEM through advocacy in local and state governments of Texas. We were very excited to contribute to this year’s state-wide effort of improving STEM education and have been planning to attend this event for a long time.

To prepare, we had our students undergo practice interviews, learned about SACOT’s mission, and even met with one of our representatives, Mrs. Valoree Swanson. We met with staff to discuss how investing in education for science and technology benefits the community. We helped advocate for House Bill 341 which would provide funding for Career and Technical Education (CTE) courses in grades 8 through 12. We also discussed the Technology and Instructional Materials Allotment (TIMA) which would help to provide for instructional materials for those classes and training to teachers which would enhance the learning environment for the students.
