The Texas Alliance for Minorities in Engineering (TAME) is thrilled to announce that partner Boeing has generously awarded a $100,000 grant to celebrate the science behind the past 100 years of aerospace advancement and ready students, families and teachers with skills for the next century. As part of its centennial in 2016, Boeing is teaming with several leading education partners to co-create K-12 educational resources. TAME will serve as one of Boeing’s strategic partners, introducing the next generation of Texas students to innovative problem solving and careers in STEM.
The Boeing grant will provide Family STEM Night events centered on the TAME Trailblazers, bringing a novel, mobile STEM engagement program to students and their communities across the Lonestar State.
The funding will also support development of toolkits and training for TAME Clubs, which provide a supportive place to build STEM and problem-solving skills and to connect to a network of peers, mentors, and future employers.
Finally, Boeing engineers and partners will help develop Engineering Design Challenges to be used at the 2016 Divisional and State STEM Competitions. A favorite of many students, the Engineering Design Challenge brings together competitors from diverse backgrounds to engineer solutions to real-world problems.
Thank you, Boeing, for making a difference in the lives of students, and for helping us build a workforce that looks like Texas.
