Divisional STEM Competition
About the program
The STEM Competitions are an important part of TAME (Texas Alliance of Minority Engineers) and the College Connect multi-faceted approach to engaging and retaining students interested in STEM. Designed to reinforce success in math and science and to encourage the development of a peer and mentor network, the competitions also provide a unique opportunity for students from rural and/or economically disadvantaged areas, to visit a college or corporate campus and to interact with STEM role models.
Through this competition, grades 6-12 students from region 17, will participate in taking the University Interscholastic League (UIL) style math and science tests. Students will join in high engagement activities that will develop student's professional skills, individual, creativity, personal excellence and social awareness needed to achieve higher education attainment. In addition to these activities, students will be randomly placed in groups based on gender, ethnicity, school, and grade level, to partake in an engineering design challenge. The goal of this competition is to reinforce the importance of math and science, and to expose students to engineering design, building, and preparation to be ethical leaders for a diverse and globally competitive workforce.
TAME Region 17 STEM Competition will be held this year in person on Texas Tech Campus. College Connect will be hosting the event in the Red Raider Ballroom in the Student Union Building on Monday, February 13th, 2023. Check in will begin at 9:00 am.
Multiple‐choice testing will not be included in this year's Divisional STEM
Competitions. An expansion of the Engineering Design Challenge has been added to allow students to make adjustments to their design in the second phase of the challenge.
