Guiding the Next Class of Discoverers

Because of you, students light up when science helps them discover something new about themselves or the world around them. Because of you, an inspired student may one day make a scientific discovery that will change the world. And it's because of the STAT community that you can access the resources and support to make a difference in your students' lives.

STAT knows how passionate you are about teaching our future discoverers, and as the largest and longest-established science teachers association in Texas and the only general science education association in the state, STAT has the tools you need to change lives as a science educator in Texas.

From Amarillo to Brownsville and El Paso to Texarkana, STAT breaks down the classroom walls so you can collaborate with thousands of dedicated teachers like you across the state, grow as an educator, and inspire your students to discover the world through science.
