GILBERT, AZ (September 25, 2018) – On Tuesday afternoon, Texans Defensive Back Tyrann Mathieu returned to Arizona to unveil his first-ever Tyrann’s Tech Zone at the Boys & Girls Clubs of East Valley facility in Gilbert, Arizona. Tyrann’s Tech Zones are state-of-the-art, sports-themed technology academic centers that provide disadvantaged students with access to STEM-based learning equipment. The newly-installed Tech Zone at the Boys & Girls Club in Gilbert features two brand new Mac desktop computers, photography equipment, audio recording equipment, and even musical instruments.

Mathieu was welcomed to the Boys & Girls Club by dozens of kids, who formed a high-five line for him as he entered. During the unveiling ceremony, Mathieu spent some time fielding questions from the Clubs members and emphasizing the importance of education and commitment to learning. He also broke in the equipment alongside the youth in attendance.

Because of a lack of financial resources, many elementary schools in low-income communities are unable to provide students with modern technology and cutting-edge scientific equipment. As a result, the students gain little exposure to STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) fields. However, STEM fields are among the most rapidly growing careers in the country, and thousands of young and enthusiastic minds are needed to fill these positions. The Tech Zone unveiled by Mathieu and his Foundation team ensure that these underserved students are granted the necessary exposure to STEM at an early enough age to enable them to one day pursue STEM careers.

Tyrann’s Tech Zone is the featured program of the Tyrann Mathieu Foundation. Tuesday’s launch further illustrates Mathieu’s continued partnership with Boys & Girls Clubs, as he’s now worked with clubs in Arizona, Texas, and his home state of Louisiana. Though he’s cemented himself as a key part of the Houston Texans’ defense, Mathieu returned to Greater Phoenix for this program, as it was a way to give back to the community that strongly supported him and his Foundation while he was a member of the Arizona Cardinals. This new Tech Zone will provide educational resources to hundreds of lower-income students on a yearly basis.
