Hurricane Relief for TAME Students 

About 500 TAME students in the Gulf Coast and Golden Triangle Chapters have been directly impacted by Hurricane Harvey and its aftermath. Several of our students are dealing with the second flood of the school year. About 20-25 teachers in the GC TAME Chapter are also displaced and currently in shelters.

Many of the traditional disaster recovery services are focused on providing immediate support to these students and their families. While many of us are supporting this effort personally, as an organization, TAME would like to provide school supplies and classroom supplies to our extended TAME family.

Divisional STEM Competition

The 2017 Gulf Coast Divisional STEM Competition took place February 11, 2017 at The University of Houston. Visit our Competition Schedules & Results page for results and photos as they become available.




How to sign up your students for a TAME Competition

To participate in TAME activities like Divisional Competitions, you need to be a member of a TAME Club. Our clubs are free and require only eight students, an Adult Sponsor, and regular meetings about STEM in person. 

IMPORTANT:  Membership with TAME is a two-part process. It begins with annual Club Registration. Once the Adult Sponsor registers the TAME Club for their school or organization, then the students in their club need to complete their Student Registration.
 
DEADLINE: If you are in grades 6-12 and want to participate in the Divisional or State STEM Competitions, the deadline to register Clubs and Students online is Wednesday, November 15th.


Students who do not register by the deadline are still welcome to register and participate in the activities hosted by their TAME Club. Graduating seniors must complete Student Registrations to apply for 2018 TAME Scholarships in the spring semester when they become available. 

 


Invitations to the State STEM Competition

Students must participate and qualify in a Divisional Competition to receive an invitation to the State Competition. Contact the Chapter leadership for more information.
