TEAMS Competition 2014


You are invited to participate in TEAMS at Nebraska Engineering

Wednesday, Feb. 24, 2014

Show Students Why Math and Science Matter!

Teams LogoThe TSA TEAMS program is an annual high school competition challenging students to work collaboratively and apply their math and science knowledge in practical, creative ways to solve everyday engineering challenges. After participating in TEAMS, students increase their knowledge of engineering, feel more confident about participating in engineering activities and increase their ability to work with others to solve complex problems.

Focused on a theme each year, original academic and innovative concepts are developed for the competition based on the National Academy of Engineering’s Grand Challenges. Tackling these challenges requires critical job-readiness skills such as collaboration, analytical thinking, and multidimensional problem-solving. TEAMS 2014 will focus on engineering tomorrow's cities.
