Trailblazer Visit Request Form
Out of concern for the health and safety of all STEM-enthusiasts in our Texas community, TAME is taking extra precautions as we proceed with museum visits this fall.
The event was fantastic! From start to finish, it was a quality production, and I am SO glad we were able to offer this to our community. As they were coming out of the exhibit, I heard several kids discussing how cool it was. It is always heartwarming when kids spontaneously promote events to other kids. That’s when you KNOW it was a success! Thanks SO much to TAME and to all the underwriters. This is such a worthwhile investment!
