Local High Schools Participating in Nationwide Engineering Competition

Feb 18, 2008
Twenty-three high schools from northwest Ohio will compete in the Tests of Engineering Aptitude, Mathematics and Science (TEAMS) competition to be held on Ohio Northern University's campus on Wednesday, Feb. 20. TEAMS is a dynamic academic program and competition that introduces high school students to the world of engineering.

Student teams currently are in training for the competition, applying classroom-taught math and science concepts to real-world problems. The teams must also demonstrate excellent teamwork and critical-thinking skills in solving sample test problems.

Each team will compete at the varsity or junior varsity level in one of seven school-based divisions or in the home-school division. The top-scoring teams in each division in each state will be eligible for national ranking, determined by the eligible teams' performance on the second part of the two-part test.

Here, TEAMS is sponsored by Ohio Northern University's T.J. Smull College of Engineering and Admissions Office, the Lima Section of the Institute of Electronics and Electrical Engineers, and the Lima Chapter of the Ohio Society of Professional Engineers. TEAMS is nationally sponsored by JETS - a national non-profit organization promoting interest in engineering, science, mathematics and technology.
