Little Rock Central High SECME Students Continue to Shine

On November 3, 2012 Little Rock Central High SECME students won the local Robotics Competition for the first time. LRCH outdistanced ASMSA, National Park Technical from Hot Springs, Parkview, E-Stem, and 15 other schools to win the first place trophy. LRCH now will move on to Fort Smith to face 200 other schools from 20 different states in Regional Competition.

SECME was established in 1975 as the Southeastern Consortium for Minorities in Engineering by the Engineering Deans at six Southeastern universities: University of Alabama, University of Florida, Georgia Institute of Technology, University of South Carolina, University of Tennessee and Tuskegee Institute now Tuskegee University. The mission of SECME is to increase the pool of historically underrepresented and under-served students who will beprepared to enter and complete post-secondary studies in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM); thus creating a diverse and globally competitive workforce.
