Take your students on a trip across Texas with the State of Tomorrow™ Curriculum
The State of Tomorrow™ curriculum will help your students understand the important relationship between universities and communities — and introduce your class to exciting career and educational opportunities in fields such as medicine, science, technology and environmental quality.
Designed for grades six through 12, the curriculum offers previewing and post-viewing activities that can be used for any of the 13 State of Tomorrow episodes.
