TAME Club FAQ and annual Registration
A TAME Club is an extra-curricular enrichment program that supports students interested in exploring science, technology, engineering, math (STEM) and computer science. TAME Clubs are typically sponsored by teachers, librarians, administrators, parents, or community partners and are often hosted on a school campus or at a community center. Clubs meet regularly to increase student skills, awareness of STEM careers and access to role models. TAME volunteers from local universities and corporations may support the clubs and serve as role models.
