TEAMS (Tests of Engineering Aptitude, Mathematics and Science) is a unique and challenging academic program and annual competition designed to challenge students to work cooperatively and think creatively to solve real everyday engineering problems!
Schools may register as many teams of four to eight students in grades 9 through 12 as they wish. Varsity teams are open to any grade level, while Junior Varsity teams are limited to students in grades 9 through 11. There are different divisions based on school enrollment, size, and admission criteria.
The TEAMS competition is a one-day, two-part academic competition coordinated by the Junior Engineering Technical Society (JETS). Students build their problem-solving skills across several academic areas and learn to work cooperatively as group members during the competition. The experience is designed to introduce students to an “engineering team” work environment. Students compete for local, state and national awards and recognition. JETS will recognize the top 10 national teams in each division, plus each student participating in a nationally ranked team will receive Certificates of Achievement.
In addition, NDSU will provide $500 scholarships to each member of the team that places in the top three at the national level.
