TEAMS (Tests of Engineering Aptitude, Mathematics and Science) is a one-day competition for students in middle and high school that allows them to apply their knowledge of skills in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) to issues facing our global society. Focused on an annual theme, original academic and innovative concepts are developed for the competition based on the National Academy of Engineering’s Grand Challenges. Engaging in the challenges requires critical job-readiness skills such as teamwork, analytical thinking, and multi-dimensional problem solving.
TEAMS is managed at the national level by TSA and the national TEAMS competition now takes place in conjunction with the National TSA Conference. Many TSA chapters now compete in TEAMS, but you do not have to be a TSA chapter in order to participate.
