The TMSCA math and science competition consists of four contests – number sense, calculator, mathematics, and science. Students compete against peers in their respective grade level and UIL classification.
In each of the four contests, team awards are also made using the top four scores from each school regardless of grade level. Sweepstakes prizes are awarded based on the four team scores for each school.
Other competitors for A&M Consolidated were Melissa Yang, David Wu, and Steven Wang, while Merusha Mukherjee, Daniel Sung, and Esther Yi also competed for College Station.
The students were accompanied by Jamie Bassett, Elizabeth Cunha, and Naveen Cunha.
