Technology Student Association Partners with Leaders in STEM Education Advocacy for Annual Competition
Date:1/15/2014

Reston, VA (PRWEB) January 15, 2014

Two champions of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education have continued their sponsorship of an annual competition for middle and high school students designed to stimulate interest in, and access to, innovative STEM study. The competition presents students with real-world problems experienced by engineers.

TEAMS: Tests of Engineering Aptitude, Mathematics, and Sciences is a program administered by the Technology Student Association (TSA). TEAMS provides hands-on STEM enrichment allowing students to imagine creative, practical solutions to genuine engineering challenges.

This year’s theme is “Engineering Tomorrow’s Cities.” Nationwide, more than 1,000 teams of students will meet for one day during the competition window between February 10 and March 22, 2014. Teams will answer multiple choice and essay questions reflecting scenarios based on the National Academy of Engineering’s Grand Challenges for Engineering “restore and improve urban infrastructure.”

Students will explore the impact that engineers can have in the urban design process. Participants will consider solutions to challenges involving the future of the electrical grid, green space planning, pollution control, sustainability, transportation, and waterway/sewer system development. Team responses are scored, and teams are ranked at the division and state level. Top-ranking schools will compete for Best in Nation honors at the national TSA conference, which will take place in June in Washington, D.C.

CH2M HILL is a global project delivery company focused on helping clients build a better and more sustainable world. According to CH2M HILL Foundation Executive Director Ellen Sandberg, “The TEAMS program is an ideal venue for students of all ages to engage in real-world engineering challenges. The infrastructure in our cities around the world are facing enormous challenges and the students of today will be the solutions providers of tomorrow.”

Rockwell Collins is a leader in communication and aviation electronic solutions. The company believes in inspiring the next generation of engineers and innovators, and in building strong, vital communities as a way to ensure the success of its business. According to Linda Snow-Solum, Senior Director, Engineering Infrastructure, Development & Lean, “The TEAMS program engages students in the wide variety of skills that are a part of the engineering profession. Students have the opportunity to experience learning in a collaborative environment and develop leadership skills – all critical aspects of future success.”

Nonprofit program partners are ITEEA/EbD (the International Technology and Engineering Educators Association/Engineering byDesign™), NCTM (National Council of Teachers of Mathematics), and PLTW (Project Lead the Way).

Rosanne White, executive director of the Technology Student Association, explains, “The Technology Student Association is for students engaged in science, technology, engineering, and math. We appreciate the support we receive from all these partners in helping us provide a program that will prepare the next generation of engineers.”
