Alabama  Consortium  for Technology  in  Education  

ACTE - Region One 


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 (no groups for 2021) of no more than two students (except for robotics) 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 (no tech test for 2021) and participate in the Team Programming Challenge (TPC). (See Tab TPC-Alabama 50 for 2021).  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. 
(Virtual Only...sadly we will not be on campus for 2021)
 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.

I wish to do something great and wonderful, 

but I must start by doing the little things 

like they were 'Great and Wonderful.'
