STEM levels the playing field. Anybody can be whatever they want. If kids are working with a 3D printer to design a prosthetic hand, they’re not thinking about socioeconomic barriers. They’re thinking about what they can do with that printer.
Dr. Denise Simmons, assistant professor of Educational Leadership & Technology at Midwestern State University and co-chair of TAME’s Wichita Falls Chapter (2015-2018).
About TAME Chapters
TAME chapters provide local leadership and support for STEM education. From the high plains to the gulf, TAME brings exciting science programming to K-12 students all across Texas. Our local chapters make this possible.
Led by dedicated volunteers from local STEM industries, school districts, higher education institutions, and libraries, TAME Chapters develop locally relevant offerings like career days, factory tours, and professional development for teachers. Local chapter leaders work with TAME’s strong network of K-12 teachers, higher education partners, and corporate partners to strengthen the education-to-employment pipeline in Texas.
TAME Chapters cover large areas of Texas corresponding to the Texas Education Agency regions. Each TAME Chapter coordinates local events for TAME Clubs formed by schools, libraries, homeschool groups, and other organizations.
