(Odessa, TX) – The 2016 TAME West Texas STEM Competition was hosted by Odessa College on Saturday February 6, 2016. The event, held free of cost to participants, brought together nearly 100 student competitors (grades 6-12) from across the region.

Students competed in individual math and science tests and were grouped into teams to participate in an Engineering Design Challenge. This year's challenge was developed by engineers from Boeing and Iridescent. The top six students from each test and the top three teams from the Engineering Design Challenge were recognized. One team also received a special Judges' Choice Award for creative problem solving.

The Texas Alliance for Minorities in Engineering (TAME) is a statewide 501(c)(3) non-profit organization founded in 1976 that enables Texas students to pursue careers in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM). In addition to testing student knowledge of math and science concepts, the competition promotes teamwork, leadership, and academic achievement.

More information on TAME's STEM Competitions (formerly known as Math and Science Competitions) can be found here. If you have any questions or comments, please contact the leadership for the West Texas Chapter.

Congratulations to all our competitors!

If you took photos at the event, please do not share Engineering Design Challenge photos until Feb 26th. We want to keep the challenge TOP SECRET until all students have had the chance to compete.

Please consider sharing pictures of the 2016 Divisional STEM Competitions with the TAME State Office. We will share selected pictures on the TAME Facebook page and with corporate and university partners who have ensured that the competition is offered free of cost to participants.
