The Amaz!ng Meeting (TAM) is an annual celebration of science, skepticism and critical thinking. People from all over the world come TAM each year to share learning, laughs and the skeptical perspective with their fellow skeptics and a host of distinguished guest speakers and panelists. We are excited about the workshops, evening shows, presenters and parties and special events we are lining up for TAM 13 (2015) and can’t wait to see everyone again!

TAM 13 will be held at Las Vegas’ Tropicana Hotel, Casino & Spa, July 16th – 19th, 2015.


The Rising Star Grant aims to send young adults, ages 18-30, to the Amaz!ng Meeting 13. The goal of the grant is to find young individuals who have an interest in skepticism and have the potential to contribute new talent to skeptical communities. Grant winners should demonstrate outstanding work in their field and/or talents valuable to the promotion of scientific skepticism.

The grant will cover the registration cost for the applicant. The grant was created by Sara E. Mayhew, TAM speaker, TED Fellow, and manga author. Organizing the 2015 program is Kyle Sanders, instructor pilot, cartoonist, and contributor for Skeptic magazine.

100% of fundraiser proceeds goes to the grant.
