2019 TAME Lubbock STEM Competition Results


(Lubbock, TX) – The winners of the 2019 TAME East Texas STEM Competition have been announced, but participating students are not divulging any details. Hosted at Texas Tech University on Monday January 28, 2019, the free event brought together more than 240 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.

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. TAME thanks our partners and our many dedicated volunteers for celebrating achievement in STEM and making learning fun and exciting for Texas students.

More information on TAME's STEM Competitions can be found here. If you have any questions or comments, please contact the leadership for the Lubbock Chapter.

Congratulations to all our hardworking competitors! 



Remember, please DO NOT SHARE any details or pictures of the top secret Engineering Design Challenge until March 3rd, 2019 so all students across the state can enjoy the same experience at later events. If you're sharing other photos of the event, please tag TAME using #LonestarSTEM.

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.
