(Longview, TX) – The winners of the 2019 TAME East Texas STEM Competition have been announced, but participating students are not divulging any details. Hosted by the Komatsu Mining Corporation, on Friday, January 18, 2019, the free event brought together more than 115 student competitors from across the region.
Texas students from grades 6-12 competed in individual math and science tests and as part of a team to solve an Engineering Design Challenge. Participants have been sworn to secrecy about the Challenge – at least until March 3rd, when students across the state have had their chance to try their skills solving the same problem. This year's challenge was developed by engineers from ConocoPhillips.
