CANYON, Texas (KAMR/KCIT) – According to an announcement from Perdue Acoustics, the Panhandle-Plains Historical Museum will temporarily release two vehicles to allow them to tour the region in an effort to foster student STEM excitement in the Window on a Wider World program.
Perdue Acoustics said that the museum will release two vehicles back to their creator, WOWW traveling STEM educator and enthusiast Jay Perdue, on Friday morning. The vehicles will be loaded into a custom trailer in order to facilitate their participation in their educational tour.
“The two vehicles together represent 13 World Records and are absolutely full of STEM teachable excitement to get students all over the Panhandle region ‘reved up’ about these subjects this school year.” said the announcement.
