You are invited to participate in TEAMS at Nebraska Engineering


Show Students Why Math and Science Matter!

The TSA TEAMS program is an annual high school competition challenging students to work collaboratively and apply their math and science knowledge in practical, creative ways to solve everyday engineering challenges. After participating in TEAMS, students increase their knowledge of engineering, feel more confident about participating in engineering activities and increase their ability to work with others to solve complex problems.

Focused on a theme each year, original academic and innovative concepts are developed for the competition based on the National Academy of Engineering’s Grand Challenges. Tackling these challenges requires critical job-readiness skills such as collaboration, analytical thinking, and multidimensional problem-solving. TEAMS 2015 will focus on the power of engineering.

Why TEAMS?

  • Increases student knowledge and understanding of engineering
  • Helps students see what's possible with a major and career in engineering
  • Raises student confidence in their ability to participate in engineering activities
  • Energizes students with new academic topics and content
  • Removes social barriers and negative attitudes about engineering
  • Promotes collaboration and problem-solving in a team environment
  • It's fun! Student teams vie for local, state and national recognition and awards with the chance to be named “Best Overall” in the country
