About Houston Museum of African American Culture
The mission of the Houston Museum of African American Culture (HMAAC) is to collect, conserve, explore, interpret, and exhibit the material and intellectual culture of Africans and African Americans in Houston, the state of Texas, the southwest and the African Diaspora for current and future generations.
HMAAC seeks to invite and engage visitors of every race and background, and to inspire children of all ages through discovery-driven learning. HMAAC is a museum for all people. While our focus is the African American experience, our story in Texas informs and includes not only people of color, but people of all colors. As a result, the stories and exhibitions that HMAAC will bring to Texas are about the indisputable fact that while our experience is a unique one, it has been impacted by numerous races, genders and ethnicities.
CSTEM engages Pre K through 12th grade students in hands-on, project-based learning experiences that expose them to workforce opportunities in related areas of C-STEM. We enrich curriculum and instruction through integrated STEM learning experiences. The emphasis on hands-on, project-based learning supports teacher and student involvement in creative real-world problem-solving.
CSTEM integrated learning approach enhances instruction for 21st century students. CSTEM’s distinguishing factors from other STEM programs are (1) the integration of communication (literacy) in STEM as a factor to ensuring student success in math and science; (2) a curriculum influenced by STEM industry professionals; (3) a unique framework of creating collaborative P-12 pipelines; (4) built-in supports with STEM teacher training and supplemental workshops; (5) innovative STEM instructional tools and resources provided to schools, and (6) a competitive environment that supports high performance and accountability of both teachers and students.
