TEAMS

Experience Engineering!

Tests of Engineering Aptitude, Mathematics, and Science (TEAMS) is an annual competition for middle and high school students designed to help them discover their potential for engineering.

During this one-day competition, students apply math and science knowledge in practical, creative ways to solve real-world engineering challenges.

TEAMS sparks excitement by:

  • Providing an integrated STEM learning experience
  • Allowing students a unique inside look at problem solving from an engineer’s viewpoint
  • Increasing students’ self-confidence in solving complex problems while working on a team
  • Inspiring students to consider engineering majors and careers

 

The 2017 TEAMS competition, “Engineering the Environment,” will explore areas such as energy efficiency, geothermal heatpumps and wastewater treatment.

Focused on a theme each year, original academic and innovative concepts are developed for the TEAMS competition based on the National Academy of Engineering Grand Challenges. Tackling these challenges requires critical job-readiness skills such as collaboration, analytical thinking, and multidimensional problem-solving.
