The Hispanic, Engineering, Science, and Technology (HESTEC) Week is organized by The University of Texas-Pan American, one of the country's top Hispanic-serving institutions, in conjunction with the Office of Congressman Rubén Hinojosa. The innovative program was created eleven years ago to address the critical shortage of scientists and engineers in the United States. Since its inception, HESTEC has become a national model for promoting science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) careers among South Texas students who are predominantly Hispanic.
