AMCHS represented at the World Food Prize Global Youth Institute

Ezekiel Hsieh attended the World Food Prize Global Youth Institute along last week to present his paper--Bolivia: Infrastructure Development to Improve Market Accessibility and Reduce Inequity. Over his time in Iowa, he had the opportunity to hear Tony Blair, Howard Buffett, the president of Iceland, and a number of leaders in the field of agriculture speak. He attended a meet and greet with the president of Iceland and other dignitaries with many of the other 150 youth in attendance at this prestigious conference. In addition to attending lectures, he toured farms and worked to package meals for others. He also had the chance to participate in a hunger banquet that helped to simulate global issues surrounding food and poverty.

Tiger Cross Country

District Meet Results

The Tiger Men's and Women's Cross Country teams competed hard at the district meet Thursday at College Park in The Woodlands. The guys finished in 5th place as a team.


In a cross country meet, team scores are determined by totaling up the places of the first five runners on the team. A total of 7 team members can compete in each race. At the end of the race, the AMCHS women's cross country team was tied with Conroe Oak Ridge at 104-104. The tiebreaker went to the sixth runner, not normally calculated in the team's score, to determine who would move on to the regional meet on November 2nd in Arlington. Consol's sixth varsity runner finished ahead of Oak Ridge's sixth runner to send our team to Arlington to compete at the regional level.


Congrats to both cross country teams for their accomplishments this year!

Tiger Robotics Wins First Place at the Southeast Texas B.E.S.T. Robotics Competition!

Over the past weekend the Tiger Robotics team traveled to Sam Houston State University to compete in the Regional Southeast Texas B.E.S.T. Robotics and Engineering Contest. The team’s dedication and hard work paid off once again. Tiger Robotics took First Place in the B.E.S.T. Overall award. The team will travel to Dallas, TX on November 7th – 9th to compete at the state/national level Texas B.E.S.T. competition at the University of Texas at Dallas.

Tiger Robotics participates in a nation-wide competition called B.E.S.T., which is dedicated to Boosting Engineering, Science, and Technology. Each year, B.E.S.T. presents students with a new robot challenge and students are given six weeks to design, build, and market a fully functioning robot. A regional competition is hosted by a local hub and teams are judged and ranked.

Since 2003, Tiger Robotics has won first place at their Regional Hub 9 out of the 11 years. For the past 15 years, Tiger Robotics has advanced to the tri-state level competition hosted by the Texas B.E.S.T. association where they competed against the top teams from other hubs. This year, Tiger Robotics is working diligently to prepare both the robot and the marketing team to win big. Tiger Robotics, coached by Bart Taylor, Patrick Powell, Matt Young, and Kimberly Caldwell, has strived to honor its commitment to excellence both on and off season.


For more information about Tiger Robotics, “like” Tiger Robotics on Facebook, or check out the team website at tiger-robotics.org. Keep an eye out for Tiger Robotics at community events such as the Brazos Valley Career Fair, Project Sunshine Homecoming Carnival, and MASH Toy Drive.
