Visiting TAMS

Preview Day

Welcome to the Texas Academy of Mathematics & Science Preview Day. We are excited you will be joining us on this digital journey exploring the important details of TAMS and what opportunities are available to students.

Preview Days are for parents, educators, and students in grades 7–11. We will be providing digital sessions to attend where you will learn about TAMS by gathering details on the curriculum and research opportunities, track selection, and have an opportunity to meet staff and students. Each set of sessions will be a collaboration of exploration by you followed by an online chat with us. In these chats, you will have an opportunity to ask questions. We are providing a chat session at different times on different days throughout the semester for you and your family’s convenience. 

Ready to begin? Take notes, write down your questions, and let’s do this together!

First, we suggest you explore the FAQ's available here.

Second, explore our video content and YouTube channel here.

Then, join us for one of our Preview Day Webinars with Q&A listed below. Each one will last approximately one hour. 

Please be sure to register for your event as we will send you the Zoom webinar details one day ahead of time based on your registration with us.
