Alabama Consortium for Technology in Education - ACTE
TEAM PROGRAMMING CHALLENGE 2019
The Alabama Consortium for Technology in Education (ACTE) Region One Technology competition is open to all Alabama students in grades three through twelve; whether students go
to a private or public school, learn at home, or sponsored by
another organization. Students may create projects in a
broad range of categories either individually or in a group of no more
than two students (except for robotics and TPC) and may register a combination of up **TWO** projects. (Project count does not include the TECH FAIR TEST or TPC).
Additionally, students may compete by taking an online Information
Technology (IT) test and participate in the Team Programming Challenge
(TPC). The IT test comprehensively tests student's knowledge on a
variety of general technology topics. The TPC is a timed exercise where teams of students grades seven through twelve are presented challenging programming problems to solve.
The University of Alabama at Huntsville (UAH) Colleges of Engineering and College of Science are our sponsors this year. A special thank you to Dr. Shankar Mahalingam, Dean of Engineering; Dr. Rob Griffin Associate Dean of Science and Dr. Bernhard Vogel, Associate Professor of Chemistry in the College of Science and Assistant Director of the Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Lab (NMR) for their collaborative support.
CANCELLED Sadly, due to these uncertain times, the State ACTE Tech Fair scheduled for April is cancelled and will not be rescheduled. We hope everyone stays healthy and makes plans to attend the ACTE techfairs in 2021.

To the ACTE State Technology Fair Participants, Sponsors, and Volunteers,
After thoughtful consideration and with the guidance of AUM University, the Center for Disease Control and the Alabama Department of Health recommendations, the Alabama Consortium for Technology in Education (ACTE) State Staff have made the decision to cancel the 2020 ACTE State Technology Fair. We share this information with you with a heavy heart but unfortunately there is no other acceptable alternative to proceed with the event, as the health and safety of the participants, sponsor, and parents are in our thoughts. We were advised that no gathering over 500 occupants should take place at this time and AUM is moving to have students take courses only through the end of March.
We recognize every team, individual, sponsor, teacher, parent, and volunteer for their continued support of the ACTE State Technology Fair each year. It is only with your participation and support that we can make this event a reality each year. As we endure these unprecedented circumstances together, we pray for the safety of every resident in the state of Alabama.
In the meantime we encourage you to follow the health and safety precautions as recommended by the Alabama Department of Health, the Center for Disease Control, and local and state officials to help prevent the spread of COVID-19.
Please feel free to email us with any questions or concerns that you may have.
