Many boys harbor a love affair with the movie Star Wars and dream of the unimaginable in the vast night sky. For Byron Williams, that movie ignited his passion for science and started his journey to discover endless possibilities of new inventions and technologies.
It’s because of Williams’ passion that he may be selected to appear on “Roadtrip Nation”, an upcoming TV series on science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education.
“I like to think I’m where I am today in part because someone noticed I was good at math and science and suggested I stick with it,” said Williams, a process integration engineer at TI. “You can do so much with a STEM background – all it takes is the courage to follow your dreams.”
“Roadtrip Nation” will feature other professionals such as Williams who have a love for science. Sponsored by Change the Equation, an organization that promotes STEM learning in the United States, “Roadtrip Nation” will air on PBS in the fall of 2013 as a “reality-type” program focused on innovation.
Take a sneak peek of Williams’ interview when the crew visited him recently on TI’s Dallas campus.
