WELCOME TO HESTEC

HESTEC Week is an educational conference that features exciting events geared towards promoting science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) education to people of all ages and backgrounds.

Through the support of its wonderful sponsors and partners, HESTEC strives to empower teachers and administrators with the resources to inspire their students to pursue STEM careers (Educator Day); engage secondary level students in STEM-related hands-on activities and presentations (Student Leadership Day, Latina Day, Robotics Day, Middle School Challenge and SeaPerch Challenge); provide university students with employment and internship opportunities (College Symposiums and Fall Career Expo); and involve the community as a whole (Community Day). By communicating with these constituents, HESTEC has changed perceptions of and garnered support for STEM education at all levels.
