Owning/Managing Organization: Technology Student Association
 
Program Description: 
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.
 
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.
 
Outcomes of Program:
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.
