The 30th Annual TAME State Math & Science Competition was held at the Lockheed Martin Aeronautics campus on Saturday, May 2, 2015. Six Carroll ISD students received awards, including: Alina Nguyen, Armond Tadjali, Mana Singri, Neve Polavarupu, Sanjay Neerukonda and Tanner Dodson.
The event, offered free of cost to participants, brought together 294 high-achieving students from across Texas. TAME students from grades 6-12 qualified to attend the state competition at Divisional events hosted by the Chapters. Students competed in individual, timed math and science tests and in teams for an engineering design challenge. The top five students in each test received awards. The top five teams in the engineering design challenge were also recognized. In addition, three teams received special awards for design, creativity and teamwork.
Lockheed Martin honored the team with the most innovative solution with a special award inspired by the National Aeronautics Association’s Collier Trophy. All winners were honored with trophies or medals and all participants received a variety of door prizes and giveaways thanks to generous sponsorships.
A full list of winning competitors from this event has been posted on the TAME website.
