STEM Programs

Educational programs for students and community members of all ages

Out of concern for the health and safety of our community, The University of Texas at Austin has cancelled all in-person Summer 2020 programs, including Code@TACC.

Program Spotlight

Code @ TACC Robotics provides an introduction to programming, robotics and electronics


In addition to summer programming, TACC provides educational tours throughout the year to increase awareness about the impact of science and technology; get students excited about STEM careers; and help students make the connection between STEM careers and their everyday lives.


The following programs have been sponsored by Cisco, Dell, National Science Foundation, the KLE Foundation, Summer STEM Investment Hub, and Verizon.
