The JETS 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 real 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.

What will students tackle in 2011? Energy and the global need for diversification, efficiency, security and ecological sustainability.

Working in a written competition format, teams of four to eight students to face off during two ninety-minute parts:

  • Part 1: Eight scenarios with 10 multiple choice questions each, requiring team members to apply math and science knowledge to novel situations.  
  • Part 2: Eight tasks to be answered in a short essay format, expanding students' ideas as they explain their ideas for engineering solutions.

The one-day competitions take place at over 100 locations between February 14 and March 15, 2011 through a partnership with high school educators, universities, corporations, and professional organizations.  Involving more than 10,000 students, schools and groups compete just one day during the four-week period vying for competition day, state, and national rankings and awards.
