Issue #3 Released!
Free to read & download
We’re really excited about the release of Issue #3 in our Science SquadTM Comic Book series, a special edition written with TAME students and produced in collaboration with NASA and the WEX Foundation.
Who sent the Science Squad to space? TAME students from San Antonio, Texas! This issue of Science Squad would not have been possible without the enthusiastic contributions of the Year 3 students from the WEX Foundation’s space-STEM Lunar Caves Analog Test Sites (LCATS) program, which is also registered as a TAME Club. Their story ideas, suggestions, and lunar habitat design ideas were invaluable.
For more information on the LCATS program check out their website at wexfoundation.org/lcats
Issue #3 will always be free to download and read in English and Spanish. We encourage you to print a classroom set to go with Issues #1 & #2!

Dr. Richard L. Price, Chair Emeritus of TAME’s Golden Triangle Chapter, has been a role model for generations of STEM students at Lamar University where he taught trigonometry, precalculus and calculus, and analytical geometry, and served as the College of Engineering’s Director of Minority Recruitment and Retention.
He appears in the TAME Science Squad™ Comic Books as the time traveling mentor known as the Professor.
In 2005 in honor of Dr. Price, GT-TAME announced the Dr. Richard L. Price Endowment Scholarship for Engineering Students at Lamar University, administered by the Lamar University Foundation. See more about the ways Lamar University has honored his legacy: Lamar names auditorium after retired professor.
From his biography:
Dr. Richard L. Price—”Doc Price”—an associate professor of mathematics at Lamar University in Beaumont, Texas, has had a long and distinguished career in academics. He has devoted himself to recruiting black students to Lamar, to mentoring students, and to preparing them for careers in engineering, mathematics, and the sciences…
At Lamar, Price served as the College of Engineering’s Director of Minority Recruitment and Retention. The LU News Website quoted Dr. Price: “The minority recruiting and retention program is committed to providing scholarships, internships, and other opportunities for traditionally under represented students.”
Entrepreneur and businessman Paul Fregia, a 1981 Lamar graduate, told Lamar University’s Cardinal Cadence in the spring of 2004: “People like Dr. Richard Price were pillars in my life—people who helped me to believe that I could take the next step, and that my dreams could be endless.”
