2013 Wyoming TEAMS Competition
February 25, 2013 — 2013 Wyoming TEAMS Competition
UW College of Engineering & Applied Science
The 2013 Wyoming TEAMS competition was held on the University of Wyoming campus on Monday, February 11, 2013. TEAMS (Tests of Engineering Aptitude, Mathematics and Science) is an annual competition coordinated by the Technology Student Association (www.tsaweb.org) that challenges students to work collaboratively as they apply their math and science knowledge in practical, creative ways to solve real everyday engineering problems. This year’s theme was “Engineering a Secure Cyberspace”.
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. The competition consists of two ninety-minute parts, in a written competition format. This year a Middle School Category was added! Middle school students have two sixty-minute blocks for their competition.
As part of the event, the UW College of Engineering and Applied Science provided lunch for competing teams and their advisors.
