How does a sleeping bag… make a wind turbine spin?


Help Texas students sleep well and dream big—donate at

When TAME students collaborate on an engineering design challenge, they’re not thinking about gender, ethnicity, or socioeconomic differences. They’re thinking about how to make a better wind turbine, how to maximize wing span, or whether a spitball can qualify as an air-powered vehicle. They’re thinking like engineers.

Our mission is to keep Texas students focused on the big picture. Every year, the State STEM Competition brings students from across Texas together to celebrate academic achievement. The Engineering Design Challenges and math and science tests build confidence, teach teamwork, and connect students to a supportive peer group.

Thanks to the support of donors like you, TAME is able to offer the State STEM Competition (and all of our programs) completely free of charge to participants.

Many of the students we reach come from families and communities with limited resources. We make sure that teachers from Amarillo to the Valley have the buses and the gas they need to get students to State. We stock up on paper, tape, laser beams, and pizza. And because we know that not all of our students can afford to bring their own, we provide every kid who comes to State with a sleeping bag.

Your donation at any amount makes a big difference:

Entire Camp ($6,000): 300 sleeping bags
One Lodge ($1,200): 60 sleeping bags
One Cabin ($400): 20 sleeping bags
One Student ($20): 1 sleeping bag

When you donate to TAME at, you help Texas students to sleep well and dream big.
