SASTEMIC is a San Antonio-based 501c3 advocacy group and connectory for Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM). We are “the go-to organization for STEM in San Antonio.” Our mission is to advance STEM education and economic development to bolster the connections between K-12, college, industry, and government for the San Antonio area.


We are Education

Supporting STEM education stakeholders from Pre-K through College is our primary mission. By helping to advance creativity, making, and discovery in all learners and teachers we encourage innovation and growth, leading to a talented and prosperous society.


We are Industry

By encouraging industry aligned STEM education programs, we believe that Industry should advocate for education standards and practices. We meet with Industry partners to learn their talent needs, and focus on the preparation of innovative professionals.


We are Community

Through valuing community building initiatives and ensuring Collective Impact with other San Antonio economic development focused organizations, we assist the community in helping students reach their potential and bring in sustainable industry growth to the area.

The STEM Connectory

To maximize SASTEMIC’s mission to help advance awareness for STEM education to all K-12 students, we foster a network of programs focused on providing enriching experiences for students in and out of the classroom.  Our connectory supports the needs of STEM education with its large presence in schools, outreach events designed for family engagement, professional development for educators, bringing national programs to area students, and a collaborative radio show.

  • FIRST Robotics

    Hosting the largest robotic competition in the United States, Alamo FIRST engages students to become leaders in science and technology through robotics.

  • STEM Connection

    Listen to the STEM Connection radio show, which brings industry leaders and STEM stakeholders together to discuss important topics with weekly stories about STEM and Economic Development in our community.

  • STEM Camps

    Our STEM camps combine our high quality educational Geekbus programs, and extend our basic exploratory Maker activities, to provide students continual learning during spring and summer breaks.
