KINGSVILLE, Texas — High School students from across the state paid a visit to Kingsville to show off their building skills.

It was part of Texas A&M University-Kingsville's Agricultural Mechanics Show.

Every year, students come out to showcase projects they built over the school year.

KRIS 6 News caught up with a team from Grand Prairie who re-built a massive tractor.

"Experience is the best teacher," said Jose Pedroza, a student with Dubiski Career High School. "So, being able to rebuild something like this and come out to these types of shows to show it to people and being able to show people the 800 hours we spent on this tractor is a nice experience."

"Before, I didn't know the difference between a wrench and a ratchet," said Elizabeth Cardenas, another student with Dubiski High. "This experience taught me so much. I'm so grateful to be a part of this team."

Students from San Antonio to the Rio Grande Valley came out to Tuesday's event to participate.
