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.

How will the new tests be structured? Instead of the twenty-three different tests we currently offer, only seven individual tests will be offered at each competition. The tests will be administered by grade level and will combine math and science, including questions from both subject areas. Few students will know all of the material presented, but the tests will be a comprehensive assessment of knowledge and skills and will provide a solid baseline for measurable growth.

You boost activity in our temporal cortex.

You boost activity in our right anterior superior temporal cortex.    You really do. And that's not all. Neurologically speaking, we're only just starting to understand how gratitude affects the brain, but studies show strong correlations between feelings of gratitude and benefits to both interpersonal relationships and mental health.
