On April 1st at the University of Houston, 129 middle and high school students from four TAME Clubs in the Houston area came together for the 2023 TAME Engineering Competition!
The day was a flurry of creative exploration and collaboration as teams worked to develop a prototype for water transport, as well as the documentation and design proposal. The TAME Competition theme of water transport aligns with what many TAME Clubs have been learning about all year: the essential role of engineers in helping the world access clean water.
The TAME Competition had 22 mixed-age teams. The top six scoring teams were recognized at the event. Special Judges’ Choice Awards honored students who exemplified TAME’s 5Cs of engineering (Curious, Creative, Collaborative, Committed, Contributive). TAME also gave out Senior Awards to the graduating seniors that have been most committed to learning through TAME’s programs.
A huge and heartfelt thanks to the Gulf Coast TAME Chapter Leaders: Dr. Jennifer Luna-Singh, Competition Coordinator, and Astra Zeno, Chapter Chair.
TAME would also like to extend our deepest thanks for the generous funding support for this competition and for TAME Club programming from Chevron Phillips Chemical and PPG.
TAME would also like to thank the 2023 TAME Engineering Competition season partners, General Motors, Halliburton Foundation, NI, The Boeing Company, ConocoPhillips, ASCE Texas Section, and Silicon Labs! We’re grateful for their generous funding support for this year’s engineering challenge that started with the Diving Deep into Water TAME Clubs curriculum and is coming alive throughout this TAME Competition season!
Congratulations to all our hardworking competitors!
