SACOT is an organization created to help spread STEM through advocacy in local and state governments of Texas. SACOT was created for two very important reasons: to improve the future of students and to improve the future of Texas. SACOT brings together like-minded high school STEM students throughout Texas to advocate for increased government support for STEM-aligned educational activities. SACOT seeks to provide support, training, and resources to give these students an effective voice as they advocate at both the state and local levels.
SACOT on the Hill is our annual conference for 2019, taking place on February 19! During this conference we will be having many of our members go to the capitol in Austin, and advocate to their legislators. They will be advocating for increased involvement in STEM related funding, activities, and education. We will also be displaying some FLL, FTC, and FRC robots in the Legislative Conference Center at the Capitol. We are hoping that we will get a chance to educate some of the people in the Capitol about FIRST robotics. We hope that our advocacy during this conference will be an integral part in bringing awareness to STEM education in this legislative session.
