(Houston, TX) – The 2020 Gulf Coast TAME / Houston Divisional STEM Competition was hosted by the University of Houston on Saturday, February 15, 2020. More than 348 student competitors from across the region registered to attend the free event.
Texas students from grades 6-12 competed in individual math and science tests and as part of a team to solve an Engineering Design Challenge. Participants were sworn to secrecy about the Challenge – at least until March 1st, when students across the state had their chance to try their skills solving the same problem. This year’s challenge was developed by engineers from ConocoPhillips.
The Texas Alliance for Minorities in Engineering (TAME) is a statewide non-profit organization dedicated to inspiring and preparing Texas students to join a strong and diverse STEM workforce. TAME programs encourage students to build skills and explore STEM concepts through hands-on activities, TAME Clubs, and statewide and divisional STEM Competitions.
The top six finishers in 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. One student from each grade level was recognized as the Ace Award Winner for the highest combined math and science score.
Thanks to the support of TAME’s 2020 Statewide STEM Competition sponsor ConocoPhillips, STEM Competitions across Texas are offered free of charge for all participants. We are especially grateful to TAME’s 2020 Gulf Coast / Houston STEM Competition sponsor, Shell. TAME thanks our partners and our many dedicated volunteers for celebrating achievement in STEM and making learning fun and exciting for Texas students.
Congratulations to all our hardworking competitors!
