TEAMS Challenge - Open to Middle and High School Students
The TEAMS Challenge (formerly known as JETS) is a test of Engineering Aptitude, Mathematics and Science. The TEAMS competition requires each team (made up of 4 to 8 students) to apply their STEM knowledge in practical, creative ways to solve real-world engineering challenges. This year's focus, Engineering Tomorrow's Cities, is based on one of the 21st Century Grand Challenges for Engineering (National Academy of Engineering). Registration is completed through the TEAMS Challenge website.
SOLAR CHALLENGE - CANCELED!!!
Solar Sprint Challenge - Open to 6th - 9th Grade Students

Each school may have up to three teams compete. Competition includes the Design Challenge and Sprint Time Trials.
Solar 'Juice' Challenge - Open to 10th - 12th Grade Students
The Solar 'Juice' Challenge requires students to build dye-sensitized solar cells (DSSC) that produces enough 'juice' to power the team's designed car.
