Middle School & High School Students participated in a TEAMS Competition on Wednesday. What is a TEAMS Competition? TEAMS is an annual STEM competition challenging students to work collaboratively and apply their math and science knowledge in practical, creative ways to solve real everyday engineering challenges.
The competition formate is divided into three sections:
*Essay – Each team researches and writes an in-depth essay submitted electronically prior to their competition date.
*Multiple choice test - High school teams have 90 minutes to solve 80 multiple choice questions focused on 8 engineering scenarios related to the annual competition theme. Middle school teams have 60 minutes to solve 40 multiple choice questions.
*Design/Build – using designated materials, teams have 75 minutes to complete a hands-on design challenge related to the annual competition theme
The one-day competitions will take place at over 125 locations nationwide between February 12 and March 18, 2018 through a partnership with high school educators, universities, corporations, and professional organizations. More than 10,000 students, will compete on a chosen day during the competition window. Division and state rankings and awards will be given.
By participating in TEAMS, students increase their knowledge of engineering, feel more confident about participating in STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) activities and increase their ability to work with others to solve complex problems.
