Participants in the 2016 TEAMS challenge take on their project.

Nine teams from across Wyoming will head to Laramie, Wyo., for an annual competition to measure skills in fields of engineering, math and science.
The University of Wyoming’s College of Engineering and Applied Science (CEAS) will host the annual Tests of Engineering Aptitude, Mathematics and Science (TEAMS) state competition Feb. 20. The competition is sponsored by the CEAS and the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) International’s “A World in Motion” program.
Sixty-three students in grades 6-12 will engage in an engineering design challenge that puts problem solving, communication and teamwork skills to the test. The competition will begin at 8:45 a.m. and runs through 3 p.m. that day. Winners of the event will earn an invitation to the national TEAMS competition June 21-25 in Orlando, Fla.
Other supporters of the event include the Wyoming NASA Space Grant Consortium and School of Energy Resources.
The 2017 competition theme, “Engineering the Environment,” explores areas such as energy efficiency, geothermal heatpumps and wastewater treatment. 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.
