Education for Tomorrow Alliance’s SCI://TECH engages the business community with local private and public schools, offering 13 science, technology, engineering, and math competitions and events. Run as a partnership of EfTA volunteers and local educators, the SCI://TECH Exposition is one of the largest regional science fairs in the nation reaching thousands of students each year and qualifying students to compete in the Science & Engineering Fair of Houston, as well as state and international competitions. SCI://TECH 2021 will look a little different than in past years, but we will still engage hundreds of volunteers to offer STEM programming for thousands of students.

Though some programing will look different, SCI://TECH still offers the opportunity for community members to support K-12 STEM education. In 2021, half of the SCI://TECH events will be virtual and half will proceed live, with additional protocols to promote the safety of students and volunteers.
