STEM Behind Hollywood

STEM Behind Hollywood

From zombies and superheroes to crime drama and space, Hollywood’s blockbuster genres rely on real-world science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) to bring the magic to life on the big screen.

STEM Behind Hollywood is an exciting new program created by TI with the assistance of the Science & Entertainment Exchange, a program of the National Academy of Sciences, to get students excited about STEM education and careers.

Entertaining a new focus on STEM education

Scientists and experts who consult on Hollywood films and TV worked alongside leading math and science educators to create free classroom activities for TI-Nspire™ CX handhelds, TI-Nspire™ Teacher and Student Software, and TI-Nspire™ Apps for iPad®.

These activities center around the math and science behind Hollywood themes like zombies, superheroes, space and forensics, and they give students the chance to solve problems just like real-life scientists using the concepts behind their favorite movies and TV shows.
