Bring a Boeing-sponsored Family STEM Event to your community! Applications due 3/21.

Bring a Boeing-sponsored Family STEM Event to your community! 

"It was science, but it was AWESOME." That's what one elementary student said after leaving the Trailblazer, the STEM-museum-on-wheels that's a big part of the Texas Alliance for Minorities in Engineering (TAME)'s mission to connect Texas students to careers in STEM.

The truth is, a lot of kids aren't quite as excited about science as we are.... at least, not yet. The hands-on exhibits on the Trailblazer are designed to get kids thinking about science and other STEM fields in a new way, and encourage them to think of themselves as computer whizzes, astronauts, cardiologists, and much more.
