The Teacher Enrichment Program helps to assure a future talented and diverse U.S. workforce in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). TEP provides opportunities for middle and high school teachers to connect with leading experts from industry and academia to explore cutting-edge research and make meaningful professional links with direct benefits for their students. All TEP resources and professional development events are cost-free to participants.
TEP programming is currently available to teachers in California, Florida, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Texas, and Virginia. TEP has also served teachers in Illinois, Indiana, Maryland, and Washington, D.C. since the program's launch in 2012. The Center works with community colleges, universities, corporations, governors, state agencies, and STEM education representatives in each of the states committed to improving STEM teaching and learning. To date, over 1,905 teachers from 900 schools have participated in TEP, impacting an estimated 308,790 students!

Bedford Foundation, Greehey Family Foundation, Lockheed Martin, USAA Foundation, Van Metre Companies, Vulcan Materials, and WestRock Foundation.
