St. Clairsville, OH (February 27, 2015) — More than 185 students from 10 local high schools competed in the 2015 Tests of  Engineering Aptitude, Mathematics, and Science (TEAMS) regional competition at Belmont College on Friday, February 27 in St. Clairsville, Ohio. The event was presented by Hess Corporation.

 

Students from the following high schools participated: Bridgeport, Buckeye Local, Claymont, Magnolia, River, Shadyside, St. Clairsville, Valley, West Muskingum, and Wheeling Park.

 

This event is sponsored nationally by the non-profit Technology Student Association (TSA). The TEAMS competition involves a three-hour written exam where 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 may be considered for national recognition based on their Part I and II scores. National winners will be announced in March.

TEAMS programs 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.
