NJ TSA / TEAMS Competition

The TEAMS (Tests of Engineering Aptitude, Mathematics and Science) competition is a one-day, two-part academic exam coordinated by the Technology Student Association (TSA). Middle and high school 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. The TSA will recognize the top 10 national teams in each division, plus each student participating in a nationally ranked team will receive a Certificates of Achievement., 

Competitions consist of objective questions and problems in math, physics, chemistry, biology, computers, and English. The team with the highest overall score in each division wins the competition and a chance to have their national exam judged among schools from all over the US. The event is sponsored by NJIT in cooperation with the TSA, which oversees similar events in 32 states nationwide.

The 2018 TSA/TEAMS competition was held on the NJIT campus on Monday, March 12; its theme was “Engineering a Greener World.”
