The TEAMS competition is a one-day, two-part academic exam coordinated by the Technology Student Association (TSA). Students build their problem-solving skills across several academic areas, and learn to work cooperatively as group members during the competition. The experience is designed to introduce students to an “engineering team” work environment. Students compete for local, state and national awards and recognition. TSA will recognize the top 10 national teams in each division, plus each student participating in a nationally ranked team will receive Certificates of Achievement.
Competitions consist of objective questions and problems in content areas related to Math, Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Computers and English. The teams with the highest overall score in each division wins the competition and a chance to have their national exam judged among school from all over the United States. This is sponsored by NJIT in cooperation with the Technology Student Association, which oversees similar events in 32 states nationwide.
*TEAMS has introduced a middle school competition since last year. The theme for 2014 is "Engineering Tomorrow's Cities."*
The 2014 TEAMS competition will be held on the NJIT campus on Monday, March 17, 2014. Registration will begin at 8:30 AM in the new Campus Center Second Floor gallery.
