The Texas Tech University STEM Center for Outreach, Research & Education and the Lubbock Independent School District are joining forces again to host the 2016 Middle School STEM Challenge. The Challenge pits ten LISD middle schools against each other in a weeklong competition to design and build machines.
Each school sends a science teacher and four students to represent their campus in the competition. Texas Tech provides one undergraduate student to join each team in addition to providing a few "experts" to guide the teams throughout the week. The Challenge culminates in a final competition where the machines are put to the test in front of a panel of Texas Tech professors, staff, and other community supporters.
