The Trail Blazer Trailer visited the Memphis Public Library in Memphis, Texas. Exhibits are mapped to science TEKS for grades 3rd-8th. Each Trailblazer, housed in a 40-foot trailer can accommodate 30 students at a time. Students take at least 35-45 minutes per group, and about 50 students visited that day. The hosting organization provides a minimum of five volunteers. A TAME Trailblazer Facilitator delivers the Trailblazer and trains volunteers. Educators are provided with follow-up materials.
I volunteered to work in the booth for energy. I helped kids learn about electric circuits, wind energy, mechanical energy and static electricity. the kids also discovered all the places electricity is used in their house.
