Mayim Bialik, brand ambassador for Texas Instruments, is pomoting STEM Behind Hollywood, an effort involving TI and the National Academy of Sciences to stimulate interest in science and technology careers, according to Dallas News.

The effort is in tandem with US2020, founded by Chevon and Tata Motors in response to a call by the White House to expand the number of professionals in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math. Texas Instruments, along with US2020, wants to aid the effort to grow one million STEM mentors by 2020. The group’s aim is to increase interest in these subjects especially among women, minorities and low income students, who are under represented in the  science and technological fields.

The U.S. is behind its target for 9 million STEM professionals needed by 2022, and US2020 wants the country to meet that goal. Texas Instruments has donated more than $150 million to promote STEM education, and has donated employee volunteer hours and equipment. Texas Instruments will begin a mentoring initiative, and partner with a group called Breakthrough Silicon Valley.
