Eleven teams from across the state of Wyoming will battle it out in the annual Tests of Engineering Aptitude, Mathematics and Science (TEAMS) state competition Feb. 15.

The University of Wyoming College of Engineering and Applied Science (CEAS) and School of Energy Resources (SER) have teamed up to host this year’s TEAMS Challenge Day on the UW campus. The competition will begin at 7:45 a.m. and runs through 3 p.m. that day. Winners of the event will earn an invitation to the national TEAMS competition June 28-July 2 in Nashville, Tenn.

The 2016 theme is “Engineering the Tools of Innovation,” which explores tools engineers use in areas such as space exploration, effective manufacturing and microscopy. Original academic and innovative concepts are developed for the TEAMS competition based on the National Academy of Engineering Grand Challenges. Overcoming these obstacles requires critical job-readiness skills such as collaboration, analytical thinking and problem-solving.

The day will consist of a series of events including the TEAMS competition, lab tours and an engineering design challenge that puts problem solving, communication and teamwork skills to the test.

“The CEAS and SER are so excited to host this year’s TEAMS Challenge Day,” CEAS K-14 Outreach Coordinator Teddi Hofmann says. “We have an outstanding roster representing areas from all around the state, including Dubois, Pinedale, Rock Springs, Casper and Laramie. This annual competition gives students the chance to explore concepts of engineering and engage in hands-on learning. We look forward to welcoming our competitors to campus next week.”
