   Our goal is to be a conduit for student success in the world of computer programming by 
providing a means to sharpen student programming skills, encourage more students to compete, and build team programming collaboration skills.  

ACTE activities support Governor Ivy’s Alabama Computer Science Initiative:
 “To provide all Alabama learners with access to excellent STEM educational programming and experiences that build a solid foundation and provide opportunities for entry into the workforce.”  

NOTE:  The ACTE state-wide Virtual FALL & SPRING Team Programming Challenge (TPC) events are in lieu of the ACTE TPC regional and state competitions in year's past. 


The new virtual TPC events accommodate more students state-wide for each competition.  

 Currently there is no qualifying contest for 

the Fall & Spring TPC competitions. Again, 

this applies only to the Team Programming Challenge events, and not to the regular technology fair for the regional and state category project entries which follows a 

separate protocol.
