by Public Relations Office

Cedarville, Ohio-Approximately 300 high school students from across the Miami Valley will compete in the local TEAMS exam (Tests of Engineering Aptitude, Mathematics, and Science) at Cedarville University on Thursday, Feb. 17. In TEAMS, groups of students develop teamwork and critical thinking skills by working on an open-book, open-discussion engineering exam. The test problems are similar to college freshman-level engineering questions and show students how math and science concepts can be applied to real-life problems. Attendees represent schools such as Beavercreek, Bellbrook, Bethel, Carroll, Cedarville, Chaminade-Julienne, Franklin-Monroe, Northeastern, Northmont, Springfield North, Tecumseh, and Yellow Springs. The competition begins at 9 a.m. in the Stevens Student Center Event Rooms on the Cedarville campus. Awards and recognition are given in the afternoon. Winners will have the opportunity to advance to the state and national levels. Media interested in covering the TEAMS competition should contact the public relations office at 937-766-7807. TEAMS is administered nationally by the Junior Engineering Technical Society (JETSĀ®). More than 30,000 students will be involved at more than 100 sites. TEAMS has been promoting interest in science and engineering since 1950. The local competition is sponsored by the Dayton Society of Professional Engineers and Cedarville University.
