Texas is big: 269,000 square miles, from the plains of the Panhandle to the shores of the Gulf and down to the Rio Grande in the south. Thanks to funding from Raytheon, the TAME Trailblazer rolling science-on-wheels units can offer consistent STEM programs to students anywhere in Texas.
“The morning that the Trailblazer was parked in our parking lot, I saw so many parents interested in what was going on that it was the talk for days…the students glowed with excitement. When they went inside the trailer you can see their eyes light up.” --TAME teacher, South Texas
Students exploring the Trailblazer learn about high-school academic endorsements, STEM careers and pay scales. They are also connected to next-step opportunities like after-school STEM clubs, STEM summer camps, and divisional and statewide TAME STEM competitions.
Raytheon’s contribution of $25,000 goes towards the truck that was purchased for Trailblazer II. Thank you for making a difference in the lives of students, and for helping us build a workforce that looks like Texas.
