STEM Success

On Saturday, April 6, Friendswood High School had 16 computer science students compete in the 2019 STEM Challenge at the University of Houston Clear Lake. The team competed against nearly 40 other teams, including teams from local community colleges and UHCL. FHS won many of the top awards offered.

The STEM Challenge is funded through the National Science Foundation and put on by the UHCL Computer Science and Computer Information Systems departments. It is a competition where teams of four opt to compete in one of two tracts: the programming track or the science track. In both tracks, students are given 50 minutes to solve various problems, questions and brainteasers. Next, students compete in either the software design competition or the science competition.
