During National Engineers Week, we host the Junior Engineering Technical Society’s (TSA) Tests of Engineering Aptitude, Mathematics and Science (TEAMS) Competition. UALR is the only site in Arkansas hosting this national event.
This event is designed to teach team development skills through students’ participation as a group in an engineering problem competition. Competition problems cover mathematics, chemistry, physics, biology, visual interpretation, computer applications, and reading analysis and interpretation.
TEAMS presents the multidisciplinary aspects of engineering work by illustrating how the math and science concepts students are learning work together and are applied to solve real-world problems. TEAMS is also aligned to national education standards.
High school teams compete in groups of up to eight students. For 2018, teams can elect to compete on two different levels – 9th/10th and 11th/12th. Students are encouraged to bring whatever reference materials they will need during the three hour competition. Schools compete for state and national honors only against schools that are similar in size and admission policies.
This year’s competition will be held on February 19th, 2019. For registration please visit: teams.tsaweb.org
