WHAT WE DO

TSEF is actively engaged in providing materials and managing active learning spaces for children to conduct hands-on learning experiments and realize the excitement of discovery in the sciences as well as the arts. In the early stages of the program we are working in partnership with different organizations and volunteers to support after school programs and field trip experiences and demonstrations that give elementary and middle school children the chance to develop a perspective in technology.


Our volunteer mentoring programs work with students, parents and retired scientists to guide the experiments and challenges for students. Our early program this fall focused on building robots and programing them with math programs to engage, compete and communicate through light, sound and music. 


In the program, students will be building and programming soft robots to hold objects. In additional build and program experiments we will build, test and refine race cars and FM frequency and short wave radios to track airplanes and connect to satellites. Our field trip programs will take us from museums to nature preserves to collect specimens for analysis in our Children's discovery laboratories. 


Come be part of the exciting journey of discovery!

Career Day for middle school students

On January 12 over 20 technology, educational and service companies participated in a Career Explore Day at Georgetown High school. The event organized by the Georgetown Chamber gave middle school students and the parents the opportunity to engage directly with different professions and learn first- hand about the opportunities for different careers and the education required. The event welcomed over 150 students and parents who also heard from 15 speakers about the education requirements and scholarship opportunities ahead for them.  Thank you Chamber of Commerce and Georgetown ISD.

Big career explore day with TSEF at Mc Coy Elementry

Students eased into summer with a big career explore day  where students working with TSEF scientists got the opportunity to build their own electrical circuits and actually become part of a closed circuit by holding hands and powering a sound device.  About 300 students enjoyed hands on experiments in small groups over a 3 hour program that included health care , law enforcement and other professions.

Check out this great video. We used plastic materials to build a"soft" robot grabber and programmed a servo device to control it   In our after-school program with STEM scouts, we spent several weeks designing and creating a soft robot grabber.   We programmed the servos to control the arms.
