Career Awareness Speakers

We are always seeking STEM professionals to bring their perspective to students for our weekly virtual Career Awareness sessions. Career Awareness speakers speak with or lead engaging demonstrations for 6th-10th gradeers attending AusPREP, which is a program working to increase opportunities in the STEM fields for high-achieving, under-represented students by building their skills in math and engineering concepts during this summer program.


Daily Career Awareness sessions happen from 10:30-11:30 am on campus while AusPREP is in session. Please reach out to the program director, Dr. Karen Magid, HT Director of STEM and Sustainability to discuss.




About Austin Pre-freshman Engineering Program (AusPREP)

Austin Pre-freshman Engineering Program (AusPREP) at Huston-Tillotson University is one of the Texas Pre-freshman Engineering Programs (TexPREP) located on college campuses in Texas. PREP was founded to identify high achieving middle and high school students with the potential and interest in becoming scientists and engineers and to reinforce them in the pursuit of these fields. TexPREP began in 1979 at the University of Texas at San Antonio under the leadership of Dr. Manuel Berriozabal and has been recognized nationally for preparing students for college engineering and science studies.

AusPREP will not discriminate on the basis of race, creed, sex, color, age, handicap, or national origin in selecting students for participation nor in the administration of this project. AusPREP strongly encourages women and students from minority groups, who have been traditionally underrepresented in science and engineering, to apply for participation. Middle school students who are currently in grades sixth, seventh, or eighth are encouraged to apply for PREP year one. Students currently in the fifth grade are encouraged to apply for the Pre-Algebra Institute.
