Switch Energy Alliance (SEA) recently participated in the Texas Alliance for Minorities in Engineering (TAME) State STEM Competition. SEA spoke to the TAME teachers about SEA’s new AP Environmental Science web-based energy curriculum and provided an entertaining and educational energy presentation to the 300 middle school and high school students competing in the event.
Jim Corboy, a masters student at the University of Texas at Austin, represented SEA at the event. Jim’s masters thesis studies the effectiveness of SEA’s film Switch in educating high school students on energy. Jim was assisted at the TAME STEM competition by UT undergraduate students Travis Clark and Felix Clevenger. Travis and Felix are members of the UT chapter of the Switch Energy Club.
TAME’s Divisional and State Competitions, offered free of charge to all participants, celebrate TAME students' achievement in STEM. The Competitions bring together thousands of Texas students in grades 6-12 for individual testing in math and science and a collaborative Engineering Design Challenge, which invites students to become engineers for an afternoon.
The events are a great opportunity for students to meet like-minded peers and mentors from across Texas. This year, the TAME competitions culminated with the State finals held on April 27, 2019 in Huntsville, Texas.
