District’s First Elementary STEM Campus Kicks Off Inaugural Year with Science on Wheels

League City, Texas – With the first day of school still a week away, students from Ed White Elementary School were eager to kick-start the year with some early learning, cleverly disguised as fun. The Texas Alliance for Minorities in Engineering (TAME) Trailblazer II rolled onto Ed White Elementary School, and Clear Creek ISD’s first Elementary Engineering, Science, Technology and Math (E-STEM) campus, to help build excitement for the new program and for the school’s budding engineers and scientists.



Students at Ed White will participate in highly enriched curriculum that focuses on STEM subjects. They are expected to think critically and solve real-world problems. The campus will have an increased focus on engineering through basic design application and technology that is infused throughout the entire curriculum.



The Trailblazer II was a perfect fit for the campus kick off since it is a 40-foot museum-on-wheels housing a variety of engineering and science exhibits targeted to students in grades 3 to 8. The exhibits, including ‘Energy for Tomorrow’ and the ‘Miracle of Medicine’ among others, are mapped specifically to the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) for the curriculum that will be discovered throughout these grade levels.



The Trailblazer’s visit was made possible by The Boeing Company which has supported the creation of the TAME Trailblazer II as part of its strategy to interest students in STEM careers and ultimately create a pipeline for a future workforce in the aerospace industry. TAME is an organization of volunteers from industry and education dedicated to helping more Texas students pursue careers in science, technology, engineering and math. For more information on TAME or the Trailblazer exhibits, visit www.tame.org.
