TI Ties With Baltimore Ravens' John Urschel On STEM Program
Dallas-based Texas Instruments said it has launched a new, Science Technology Engineering and Math (STEM) learning program, which is headlined by the Baltimore Ravens Offensive Lineman John Urschel. The NFL's Urschel is apparently a published mathematician, with a Ph.D. in mathematics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). According to TI, Urschel is working with Texas Instruments on a new set of activities, "Field Goal for the Win!", showing students how math, science, and sports intersect. The new activities are based on TI's popular TI-84 Plus graphing calculators, which are heavily used in schools for math classes.
