Each February Wayne State College host TEAMS. Teams of four to eight students (grade 9-12) work in an open book, open note, open-discussions format in a one-day, two-part competition. The teams compete for local, state and national awards and recognition. Teams can start preparing in the fall.
The experience is designed to introduce students to an engineering team work environment. Students compete for local, state and national awards and recognition.
Problems from a TEAMS competition offer students the opportunity to see how engineering touches almost every aspect of our lives. Past questions have dealt with such real-world engineering issues as air transportation; bridge design and rehabilitation; flood analysis solar-powered vehicles; and food preservation.
Form your team of four to eight students in grades nine through twelve TODAY! Team members should have knowledge of math, chemistry, physics, biology and computer applications.
The day consist of the two-part exam, lunch and a speaker along with the awards ceremony.
