Penn State Wilkes-Barre recently hosted high school teams in the annual Technology Student Association Test of Engineering Aptitude, Mathematics, and Sciences (TEAMS) competition, co-sponsored by the Keystone Northeast Chapter of Pennsylvania Society of Professional Engineers. TEAMS is an annual STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) competition challenging students to work collaboratively and apply their math and science knowledge in practical, creative ways to solve real everyday engineering challenges. The TEAMS competition helps develop “STEM-capable” students in an engaging way by showing them how math and science, with an engineering focus, are used to make tangible differences in the world. A team from Wyoming Area was a regional winner, along with two teams from Bethlehem Catholic. Members of the second place Wyoming Area Team A, first row, from left, are Peter Butera, Alex Robbins, Chris Chipolis and Austin Alder. Second row: John Barnes, Penn State Wilkes-Barre admissions officer and TEAMS regional coordinator; Mark Voyack, P.E., PSPW Keystone Northeast Chapter; Brendan Lee, Michael DeNardi, Anthony Saitta, Robert Butwin and David Pizano, team coach.
