Tubifi Creates Video to Capture the Minds of Massachusetts StudentsCompany Contributes Online Video Production Services for State-Sponsored WOW Initiative to Increase Awareness for STEM Education (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) (November 15, 2011)
BURLINGTON, MA -- (Marketwire) -- 11/15/11 -- Tubifi, Inc. today announced that it has contributed inspirational videos to support the 'WOW' initiative, a newly launched Massachusetts-sponsored project designed to spur youth interest in studying Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM). Working with WOW organizers, Tubifi created a series of videos for use in the Massachusetts schools that highlight the career opportunities of the 'WOW'sters, a group of 15 people who have achieved success after studying one of the STEM concentrations.
Last month at the 8th annual STEM Summit held in Boston, Lt. Governor of Massachusetts, Timothy Murray, announced the Boston-based STEM network and a series of initiatives including 'WOW' to promote and support the local program. The new Tubifi-produced videos (http://blog.tubifi.com/) are part of a campaign to capture the imaginations of school children in grades 5- 8 and feature Boston Red Sox Statistician, Bill James, Harmonix Music Systems Video Game Designer, Jim Toepel and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute's Ocean Researcher, Amy Kukulya among others.
"Our administration applauds the great work of all of our partners who are working hard to excite and 'WOW' students about STEM education," said Lt. Governor Murray, chair of the Governor's STEM Advisory Council. "We also thank Tubifi for developing their online video to help raise more awareness so we can educate, mentor and guide young people to future success in the classroom and workforce."
"As a recently launched Boston-area startup, we felt it very appropriate to lend our technology and creative talent to help spread a hopeful message to young people, that they too can someday play a role in the technological innovation that takes place in Massachusetts," said John Belchers, CEO and co-founder of Tubifi.
