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 2014 TEAMS competition, “Engineering Tomorrow’s Cities,” is based on the National Academy of Engineering Grand Challenge “restore and improve urban infrastructure.”  Students will address engineering challenges in areas such as transportation, green space, and fresh water supply.
