FAME date: November 16-17, 2013
What is FAME?
FAME is a program designed for high-school students interested in pursuing an engineering discipline who wish to learn more about the engineering programs at Texas A&M. This year we are having our FAME conference in the Fall.
Upon arriving at FAME, students will be placed on teams with several other students and led by two Team Leaders, who are members of the SEC. With their teams, students will participate in an engineering design competition. Their entries will be matched side by side on Sunday to see which team is victorious. In addition to the competition, students will also get a tour of the A&M campus and an overview of our Aggie traditions. They will also participate in an engineering department booth fair, and tour some department labs. This year we'll be having a lock-in at AeroFit where the students will be able to play games or sports, as well as socialize and sleep. Students should come ready for a fun-filled, Aggie engineering extravaganza!
Registration is first come first serve, and usually fills within a few days. The cost of the conference is $45, which includes food, t-shirt, and lock-in fee for each participant.
Included in the Conference:
- Informational Booths from Engineering Disciplines
- Engineering Lab Tours
- Engineering Design Competition
- Tours of Campus
- Aggie Traditions
- Lock-in at AeroFit Gym
- Saturday Lunch and Dinner
- Sunday Breakfast
In addition to registering for FAME, an unofficial transcript must be sent in showing a GPA at or above 3.0 or a recommendation letter from a math, science, or engineering teacher stating your enthusiasm for the engineering career field. Once all documentation is received and the minimum requirements are met, a medical waiver and a registration fee will be sent to each student, which they will need to complete before participation.
We thank you for your cooperation in completing all of these documents.
Please send all documentation by mail to:
