TAME Student STEM Clubs

Travel to the ocean floor. Design a house on Mars. Find a cure for cancer. What will YOU do?

Some of the most exciting careers in the world are in science, technology, engineering, and math. Computer scientists, researchers, and engineers are doing just about anything you can imagine: designing roller-coasters, exploring ways to cure disease, working to feed the world, and much more.

In TAME Clubs across Texas, students like you are starting their exciting careers by exploring math, science, engineering and computer science. Students enrolled in TAME Clubs compete in TAME's Divisional and State STEM Competitions and other events including Future City, Solar Car Challenge, FIRST Robotics, BEST Robotics, Vex Robotics, Code Wars, Team America Rocketry Challenge, and more. Your time with a TAME Club is just the beginning.

TAME Club and Student Registration for 2019-20 School Year

Registering with TAME is a two-part process. The process starts with the sponsor completing the annual Club Registration online or with a printable PDF. To complete the process, the students in their club complete their Student Registration online or with a printable PDF in English or Spanish. The printable forms are turned in to the Club Sponsors, who collect them and send them all together to the TAME State Office. Students will only be able to register after the adult sponsor registers the TAME Club.

Important dates:

  • Early Registration: 8/1 through 8/30 – printable PDF forms are currently available 
  • General Registration: early September through 10/30 – online forms and printable PDF forms (timing depends on the new website launch)
  • Late Registration: 10/31 through 11/6 – online forms only
  • Competition Sign-up: 11/13 through 12/11 – Club Sponsor emails programs@tame.org to confirm which students will attend, to reserve their free t-shirt and guarantee team assignments 
  • Divisional STEM Competitions: January & February
  • State STEM Competition: 4/25 in the Houston area
