In July 2015, TAME featured West Texas TAME Alumnus and Teacher Jeff Vann on the TAME Blog. To hear more about his passion for education, and the innovative ways he is incorporating project based learning and STEM excitement for his students, read the full article: Harnessing Brain Power in Odessa.
In May 2015, TAME featured Vann's students after they took on an engineering project to design a little free library for their students, shaped in the form of Star Wars character R2D2. The intergalactic-inspired Little Free Library was unveiled to the public in Odessa on "Star Wars Day," May 4th and was mounted permanently in the front of the school. Watch an interview with Vann and see the proud students celebrating their creation with this story: Sixth Graders Create R2-D2 Library Drop-Off Box from Your Basin news.Read TAME's full article: TAME Students Build Little Free Library That's Out of This World.
