Oil Patch Bits: ExxonMobil brings ‘The Dream Tour’ to Boy Scouts

ExxonMobil said Aug. 3 that along with its foundation, former astronaut Dr. Bernard A. Harris Jr. gave Boy Scouts and their scout masters a first-hand experience with the wonders of science, technology, engineering and math at the National Scout Jamboree, in Fort A.P. Hill, Va. The Dream Tour, presented by ExxonMobil, featured Harris, ExxonMobil engineers and high-tech, high-energy performances, all focused on encouraging scouts to pursue careers in math and science. Boys from across the country joined Harris, a former scout himself, for the two-hour program where they also earned a unique patch that was designed for the event. “When I was growing up, I dreamed of traveling in space. Education and being a scout enabled my dream, and now I encourage these scouts to follow their dreams by pursuing careers in math and science,” said Harris. “America’s students have incredible opportunities. The Dream Tour is one way to open their eyes to the limitless possibilities they have, as long as math and science education is part of the equation.”
