What an amazing time we live in.  The education kids are receiving is so much more advanced than 20 years ago even 10 and 5 years ago. The Texarkana ISD recently announced an amazing new program in aerospace engineering.  This will give students the chance to learn all about this field hands-on.

According to a press release, TISD has partnered up with Tango Flight. This is a program where students will build virtually a full-sized, fully operational airplane in school, specifically an RV-12iS which is a two-seater, light-sport aircraft.

Texarkana ISD Superintendent Dr. Doug Brubaker said in a press release;

“As a district with a strong innovative spirit, we are thrilled to introduce yet another STEM opportunity that sets us apart, promotes career exploration and gives our students a leg up on their futures. This program will change the trajectory of some of our students’ paths.”


This Progam is Only Available in 20 Schools in the Country


To say this is a special opportunity in our area is an understatement. Only 20 school districts in the county have this program and Texarkana is now one of them. Not only that Texas High School is one of the five schools in Texas that will be building an actual plane through this program.

See what I mean about what an amazing time this is for students, their future and for  Texarkana?

LOOK: See how much gasoline cost the year you started driving

To find out more about how has the price of gas changed throughout the years, Stacker ran the numbers on the cost of a gallon of gasoline for each of the last 84 years. Using data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (released in April 2020), we analyzed the average price for a gallon of unleaded regular gasoline from 1976 to 2020 along with the Consumer Price Index (CPI) for unleaded regular gasoline from 1937 to 1976, including the absolute and inflation-adjusted prices for each year.

Read on to explore the cost of gas over time and rediscover just how much a gallon was when you first started driving.
