(Edinburg, TX) – The 2019 TAME Valley STEM Competition was hosted by The University of Texas Rio Grande Valley on Saturday February 23, 2019. The free event brought together more than 100 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 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.
