TEAM+S is a high school academic competition formally sponsored by the Technology Student Association. TEAM+S stands for Test of Engineering Aptitude, Mathematics, and Science. It provides an opportunity to discover engineering and how knowledge in engineering can help make a difference in the world. Students work collaboratively to solve real-world engineering challenges, applying their math and science skills in practical, creative ways. Nationally, thousands of students compete every year in this fun and fast-paced competition that inspires creativity, teamwork, critical thinking and valuable insight into the world of engineering. Amherst Regional High School has been competing since 1988! ~Submitted by Patti Blauner
