(Huntsville, TX) – How does a whiffle ball lead to a career in engineering? In Huntsville, Texas, aspiring engineers faced a design challenge created by engineers from ConocoPhillips. Based on real-life situations in which wellbores are blocked by material known as “fish,” the challenge was part of the 34th annual State STEM Competition, sponsored by ConocoPhillips and held at the Forest Glen Camp in Huntsville, Texas. Students used paper clips, clay, and other materials to explore methods for removing wellbore blockages.

How does a sleeping bag... help Texas students see the future?

How-does-a-sleeping-bag-see-the-future

Help Texas students sleep well and dream big—donate by midnight on January 31st at tame.org/paypal.

"If you’re a STEM person, everything you love is here. You get to take tests and meet people who have the same interests as you. You get to see what you’re going to be like. When we meet engineers, it gives us ideas of what we want to do and which way we’re going to go." - Isabella S., TAME State STEM participant from Amarillo, Texas

When we ask TAME students about their favorite part of the STEM Competition, we get a lot of great answers. Kids love the challenge and the camaraderie; teachers love the sense of pride that their school and community feel when they send kids to participate. But our favorite response yet was just three words. We asked one student about her favorite part of the Competition, and she said: "Seeing my future."

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 focus a laser beam, 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.

How does a sleeping bag... lead to innovative industries?

Help Texas students sleep well and dream big—donate at tame.org/paypal.

"We need all the engineers we can get." Gregg Rice, 3M

Workforce diversity is a worthwhile investment. According to recent research, mixed gender teams achieve 40% more patents than all-male teams, while gender diversity at the management level results in a $42 million increase in the value of S&P 500 firms. And that’s just gender! How do we connect our many bright students to opportunities in STEM industries? It turns out that a sleeping bag – and other measures to include students from diverse backgrounds – is part of the answer.

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 wrap a fuselage, how to maximize wing span, or whether a spitball can qualify as an air-powered vehicle. They’re thinking like engineers.
