Affton Students Perform Well at TEAMS Competition

On February 18th, 23 students went to Rolla, MO for the annual TEAMS (Test of Engineering Aptitude, Mathematics, and Science) Competition. The students did very well, with four team trophies total: Senior Team – 1st Place (11/12 Division 5), Junior Team – 2nd Place (11/12 Division 5), and Sophomore Team – 1st Place (9/10 Division 5) AND Best 9/10 Overall!

TEAMS is an annual STEM 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 STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) activities and increase their ability to work with others to solve complex problems.
