2016 TAME Capital Area STEM Competition Results

The 2016 TAME Capital Area STEM Competition was hosted by the African American Youth Harvest Foundation at the University of Texas at Austin on Saturday February 20, 2016.

(Austin, TX) – The 2016 TAME Capital Area STEM Competition was hosted by the African American Youth Harvest Foundation at the University of Texas at Austin on Saturday February 20, 2016. The event, held free of cost to participants, brought together nearly 200 student competitors (grades 6-12) from across the region.

Students competed in individual math and science tests and were grouped into teams to participate in an Engineering Design Challenge. This year's challenge was developed by engineers from Boeing and Iridescent. The top six students from each test and the top three teams from the Engineering Design Challenge were recognized. Three teams also received a special Judges' Choice Award for creative problem solving.

The Texas Alliance for Minorities in Engineering (TAME) is a statewide 501(c)(3) non-profit organization founded in 1976 that enables Texas students to pursue careers in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM). In addition to testing student knowledge of math and science concepts, the competition promotes teamwork, leadership, and academic achievement.

More information on TAME's STEM Competitions (formerly known as Math and Science Competitions) can be found here. If you have any questions or comments, please contact the leadership for the Capital Area Chapter.

Congratulations to all our competitors!
