TEAMS Qualify for Nationals

TEAMS is a competition of math, science, and engineering requiring students to complete an essay on an engineering topic, a multiple choice exam, and then design and build a device with a specific purpose. Last summer, the team of Michelle Zhang, Sophia Chen, and Andy Zhu competed at the national TEAMS competition in Dallas, TX. The team's competition was highlighted by a 2nd place finish in the design build portion of the competition and they were top 10 in the multiple choice portion.

This year, based upon qualification from the state competition, there were two teams that have qualified for the TEAMS national competition in Louisville, KY. The team of Michelle Zhang, Sophia Chen, Andy Zhu, and David Cui plus the team of Justin Flenner, Gavin Nguyen, Miguel Zavala and Alex Bogey have qualified.
