on Saturday February 11, 2017. The event, held free of cost to participants, brought together over 80 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
. The top three students from each test and the top three teams from the Engineering Design Challenge were recognized. Three teams also received a special Judges' Choice Award for creative problem solving.The Texas Alliance for Minorities in Engineering
