2014 TEAMS Contest to Improve Cities


A majority of the world’s population lives in cities, presenting engineers, public health officials, and transportation planners with a global “grand challenge” to restore and improve urban infrastructure.

“Engineering Tomorrow’s Cities,” the theme of the Technology Students Association‘s 2014 National Tests of Engineering Aptitude, Mathematics and Science (TEAMS) Competition, asks middle and high school students to address urgent societal needs identified by the National Academy of Engineering, such as ensuring fresh water supplies and expanding green space. View the full list of challenges HERE.

Teams may compete in their schools or at competition sites at universities around the country.

Top ranking state teams will be invited to compete in the national TEAMS competition held at the national Technology Student Association (TSA) conference, June 27 to July 1, 2014 in Washington, D.C.  The top three teams at each level (middle school, 9th/10th grades, and 11th/12th grades) will receive trophies, with the top 10 finalists at each level receiving finalist pins.
