A team of students from McBride High School won second place statewide in a web-based science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) contest sponsored by the U.S. Army Educational Outreach Program and the National Science Teachers Association.
The team included Tristan Feves, Antonio Serrano and Julianne Sees. They designed and built a prototype seat belt system. Their advisor was teacher John Jacobson.
As part of the “e-cybermission” contest, students identify a problem in their community and use scientific practices or the engineering design process to develop a solution.
First-place state winning teams receive $1,000 per student team member in U.S. savings bonds, and second-place teams receive $500 per student.
In the next round of the competition, 60 regional finalist teams will compete to advance as one of 20 finalists at the National Judging and Educational Event June 16 to 21 in Washington, D.C.
