2019 TAME Golden Triangle STEM Competition Results


(Beaumont, TX) – The 2019 TAME Golden Triangle STEM Competition was hosted by Lamar University on February 9, 2019. The event, offered free of cost to participants, brought together more than 75 student competitors (grades 6-12) 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 were sworn to secrecy about the Challenge – at least until March 3rd, when students across the state had their chance to try their skills solving the same problem. This year's challenge was developed by engineers from ConocoPhillips.

The Texas Alliance for Minorities in Engineering (TAME) is a statewide non-profit organization dedicated to inspiring and preparing Texas students to join a strong and diverse STEM workforce. TAME programs encourage students to build skills and explore STEM concepts through hands-on activities, TAME Clubs, and statewide and divisional STEM Competitions.

The top six finishers in 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. One student from each grade level was recognized as the Halliburton Ace Award Winner for the highest combined math and science score. 

Thanks to the support of TAME's 2019 Statewide STEM Competition sponsors ConocoPhillips and Halliburton, STEM Competitions across Texas are offered free of charge for all participants. We are especially grateful to TAME's 2019 Golden Triangle STEM Competition sponsors, Flint Hills Resources and Motiva. TAME thanks our partners and our many dedicated volunteers, including Engineering Design Challenge volunteers from the U.S. Coast Guard at the Marine Safety Unit in Port Arthur, for celebrating achievement in STEM and making learning fun and exciting for Texas students.

Congratulations to all our hardworking competitors!
