Pictured are approximately 90 BISD middle school STEM program students who are spending seven weeks this summer participating in the UTRGV Texas Pre-freshman Engineering Program. The mission of the TexPREP program is to provide a challenging academic program designed to motivate and prepare middle and high school students for success in advanced studies leading to careers in science, technology, engineering or mathematics (STEM).  Students are learning how to work logic problems, the history and development of computers, engineering design, to work as teams and build challenges.
