UW hosts the annual TEAMS state-level competition.

Fourteen teams from across Wyoming will head to Laramie for a competition to measure skills in the fields of engineering, math and science.

On Feb. 19, the University of Wyoming’s College of Engineering and Physical Sciences (CEAS) will serve as host for the annual Tests of Engineering Aptitude, Mathematics and Science (TEAMS) state competition. The competition is sponsored by the CEAS and the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) International’s “A World in Motion” program. UW hosts the state event on an annual basis.

This year, 96 Wyoming students from eight different schools in grades 6-12 will participate and engage in an engineering design challenge that will test problem solving, communication and teamwork skills. The morning session will be devoted to the competition, while the afternoon will feature hands-on engineering activities for students, presented by the SAE group.

The winning team earns an invitation to the national TEAMS competition June 22-25 in Atlanta, Ga. Other supporters of the event include the Wyoming NASA Space Grant Consortium and School of Energy Resources.

The 2018 TEAMS competition theme, “Engineering a Greener World,” will feature the following topics: durability of materials, economics of green engineering, efficiency of solar power, global health, green energy basics, green building practices and insects and climate change.

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.
