More than 300 middle-school students got hands-on experience about what it could mean to pursue careers in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) when our company teamed up with the United Way of Metropolitan Dallas and Hall of Fame quarterback Troy Aikman for the sixth annual STEM in the Schoolyard event in Dallas.
“Education is a major focus for our company and for United Way,” said Brian Crutcher, TI’s executive vice president and chief operating officer. “We had an opportunity at this event to introduce students to some pretty cool technology and show them what a STEM career could look like.”
More than 150 volunteers from TI and other Dallas-area firms guided the students from Oliver Wendell Holmes Humanities and Communications Academy through activities that included circuit design, data science and facial recognition, robotics, and coding.
Troy, who is leading the annual fundraising campaign for the United Way of Metropolitan Dallas, kicked off the April 13 event and joined Brian and other volunteers to help the students learn about technology.
“When we consider the skills our young people will need to succeed in the future, STEM education plays an essential role that will only grow,” Troy said. “I’m proud to be part of United Way’s work to bridge the STEM skills gap for all North Texas students and empower a prepared workforce of tomorrow.”
