In his final year at Rising Scholars Academy of South Texas, Rene Zavier Villarreal was part of the chess team, which won first place at the Texas Chess Association Regional Chess Championship.

During UTRGV’s recent JSTEM Summer Program, area high school students learned how to solve a real-world, original research problem by collaborating on building water biofiltration systems. The camp helped them develop content and skills in specific STEM and JSTEM (Journalism, Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) disciplines. And as an added incentive, they got to interact via video conference with students in Ghana who were working on a similar project. (UTRGV Photos by Paul Chouy)
