TFMoran is a proud corporate sponsor of the SEE Science Center, a hands-on learning science museum located in the Millyard district of Manchester, NH. The SEE Science Center believes in the power of play to nurture scientific curiosity and positive development in children, families and our community through exploring the wonder of science. This sponsorship opportunity also gives TFMoran staff and their families general admission to the museum, and customized tours and programs.
TFMoran is sponsoring Bedford High School‘s FIRST Robotics Team Red Storm 509 for the 2023 Season. The team consists of 45 students participating in the global FIRST Robotics Program. Each season, the team builds a robot from materials including mechanical gears, motors, and software to compete with other regional and worldwide teams in the yearly FIRST Robotics Challenge.
This program relies on financial sponsorships to support team activities. Robot fabrication is a major annual expense that includes raw materials, tools, and machinery. Sponsorship allows the team to host events, support other FIRST teams, and help promote STEM through community outreach activities.
Best of luck this season, Red Storm 509!
Engineers Week is here! The New Hampshire Union Leader has presented a special edition this week to promote ‘STEM’ professions and to celebrate Engineers for all that they do. This special section includes a recent TFMoran project, the NH SportsDome on the front page! TFMoran Principal, Nick Golon spoke of the trials and tribulations that came with this first-of-its-kind structure in New Hampshire:
“Given its magnitude, siting the structure to minimize sightlines from adjacent properties, while maintaining required setbacks, and providing the necessary utility infrastructure were challenging issues. Another significant element was snow removal, to make sure that snowfall would not pose any risk of damage to the structure. Site grading and drainage were carefully designed so that snow and snowmelt could be conveyed safely and efficiently away from the structure and surrounding parking through an open drainage system of swales and infiltration basins.”
In other exciting TFMoran news, the announcement of our new Principals was also featured!

TFMoran proudly supports the New Hampshire Union Leader’s efforts of publishing a special section on STEM in the New Hampshire Sunday News state edition on September 27, 2020. STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) plays a crucial role for the future of New Hampshire’s industries. New Hampshire corporations and schools are investing in programs and helping students prepare for careers in the STEM fields. Thank you to New Hampshire’s Union Leader for creating more awareness to Granite State offerings in education, scholarships and programs that are available to our young students interested in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. Throughout the years, TFMoran has mentored many civil, structural and environmental engineering students through internships, as well as volunteering to judge STEM competitions, and participating in career fairs.

FIRST Robotics Team Red Storm 509 sponsored by TFMoran had many successes during their 2019 season. The team says they “greatly exceeded [their] previous barriers and have progressed as a team and an organization”. Successes such as moving on to the New England District Championship Competition and competing at the FIRST World’s Championship Competition in Detroit, Michigan for the first time in ten years.
During the second district competition held at UNH, they ranked 1st out of 30+ teams in qualification rounds, becoming finalists at this event for the first time in the team’s history. Their performance at this event earned them a spot in the New England District Championship held at WPI. In this event, they performed exceptionally well and were an alliance captain. The team moved on from this tournament to a spot in the World Championship Event held in Detroit, their greatest accomplishment of the entire season.
Redstorm Robotics is involved in community outreach such as local, state and global efforts. For their local projects, they plan to host STEM-based events to demonstrate their robot to hundreds of students and introduce them to careers in STEM fields. They also hope to build 3-D printers for schools and libraries across New Hampshire which are available to the public. For their international outreach efforts, they plan to assist third world countries by providing clean drinking water, medication, bug netting and more.
We are proud to be a sponsor, and look forward to supporting your future endeavors! Great job!
