Aspiring Engineers Test Their Skills at Annual Belmont College TEAMS Competition
St. Clairsville, OH (March 8, 2013) – More than 150 students from
eight local high schools competed in the 2013 Tests of Engineering Aptitude, Mathematics,
and Science (TEAMS) competition at Belmont College’s Main Campus in St. Clairsville.
Students from Barnesville, Bridgeport, Buckeye Local, Shadyside, Shenandoah, St.
Clairsville, West Muskingum, and Wheeling Park high schools participated.
This event is sponsored nationally by the non-profit Technology Student Association
(TSA). The TEAMS competition involves a three-hour written exam where high school
students work in groups of six to eight. The students use their math and science
skills to solve real-world engineering challenges in applied science and technology,
including architectural, biomedical, computer technology, fire-protection, mining,
telecommunications, transportation or wireless technologies.
Winners at the regional level will advance to the state level. All schools will
have their Part II tests graded by TSA and can be considered for national recognition
based on their Part I and II scores. National winners will be announced in March.

excite high school students about careers in engineering and related technical fields
and help them understand the critical role engineers play in the world around us.
