AUSTIN, Texas, June 17, 2013

AUSTIN, Texas, June 17, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Texas Instruments (TI) (NASDAQ:
TXN) and its brand ambassador – actress and neuroscientist Mayim Bialik – are
joining 2,000 STEM leaders and visionariesin business, education and
government at the U.S. News STEM Solutions National Conference in Austin, from
June 17-19 at the Austin Convention Center. Together they will share ideas and
solutions to solve the challenge of filling the gap for a competitive STEM
(science, technology, engineering and math) workforce by preparing today's
students to excel in math and science.

TI, a lead sponsor of the conference, will demonstrate how math and science
technology, strong professional development for educators and classroom
activities that showcase real-world applications of science and math concepts
are increasing student achievement in these subjects and preparing them to
pursue higher education and careers in STEMfields.

Bialik, who plays the loveably geeky neurobiologist Amy Farrah Fowler on the
hit TV comedy "The Big Bang Theory," will deliver the keynote remarks and
present the much-anticipated U.S. News & World Report Best High Schools for
STEM rankings at the first general session on Tuesday, June 18. Later that
morning, Bialik will teach an interactive science lesson with TI-Nspire™ CX
technology at the TI booth #501 to visiting Texas Gear Up students. The
Gaining Early Awareness and Readiness for Undergraduate Programs (GEAR UP)
project is a six-year federal initiative designed to increase early college
awareness and readiness in traditionally underrepresented groups. She will
also spend time later that afternoon meeting with students and answering their
questions.

In addition to Bialik's appearances, Director of Human Resources for Texas
Instruments Samantha Dwinell will join a panel discussion on developing STEM
talent in the high-tech sector on June 18 at 9:45 a.m. The panel will define
and discuss programs to create and ensure a STEM-capable workforce. Texas
Instruments Education Technology President Melendy Lovett will kick off a
panel discussion on helping school districts choose the right technology to
further student STEM skills June 19 at 10 a.m.

"We are excited to be such a big part of the U.S. News STEM Solutions National
Conference this year and bring not only Mayim, but the depth of knowledge
Texas Instruments as a whole has in helping students reach their highest
potential in STEM," said Lovett.
