Trailblazer Concepts and Exhibits

TAME works hard to keep both Trailblazer mobile STEM museums up-to-date. We focus on exhibits that feature hands-on science and provide scripts to help volunteers talk with students about career opportunities. The exhibits are sorted into five different concept areas: Aerodynamics, Biotechnology/Medicine, Energy, Space, and Weather.

See below for more information on some of our past and present exhibits that make a Trailblazer visit an experience to remember.


Exhibit Area: Aerodynamics

  • Concepts: Bernoulli’s Principle, Aerodynamic Shapes, Turbulence, Civil Engineering
  • Trailblazer I: Wind Tunnels, Turbulence Interactives, Bernoulli’s Principle, Videos
  • Trailblazer II: Wind Tunnels, Airfoil Interactive, Paper Airplanes, Bernoulli’s Principle, Videos
