Some smart minds are being put to the test at Texas A&M University-Kingsville as part of National Engineering Week.

The continuing event at the college is meant to help inspire young students to get into the engineering field. This week, TAMUK is hosting various schools from around the Coastal Bend.

On Thursday, about 150 students from Banquette, Bishop, H.M. King, Robstown and Sinton high schools, along with the Science Academy of South Texas in Mercedes, put their engineering skills to the test.
