How many engineers does it take to launch a career in aeronautics?
Sometimes it just takes one.
The 2017 State STEM Competition is right around the corner, and we’re calling all San Antonio-area engineers and other STEM professionals to join in. Competition volunteers play a critical role in the competition experience. Not only do they help the event run smoothly, they show kids what engineers (and geologists and pre-med students and biologists and mathematicians) look like in real life.
The 2017 State Competition, hosted by CPS Energy, will be held on Saturday, April 8, at the La Villita Assembly Hall in San Antonio, Texas. At the event 300 high-performing middle- and high-school students from across Texas will test their STEM skills through collaborative engineering challenges and individual timed tests. TAME STEM Competitions, offered free of charge for all participants, celebrate academic achievement and help students explore educational and career opportunities. Volunteers are encouraged to interact with students while helping to administer math and science tests and to judge the engineering design challenge.
TAME’s 2017 Competition partners include Boeing (presenting sponsor), Halliburton, ConocoPhillips, BASF, Raytheon, IBM, Lockheed Martin, Emerson Process Management, and Texas Instruments. Shell Oil Company is the sponsor of the ‘Outstanding Senior’ Award, and the ‘Judges’ Choice’ Award for the engineering design challenge is sponsored by the Texas Board of Professional Engineers.
Volunteer with TAME and see how your enthusiasm for STEM can inspire the next generation!
