CRHS STEM students participate in TEAMS competition at Widener University

Students compete in "Tests of Engineering Aptitude, Mathematics, and Science" program

Teams of Cumberland Regional High School STEM students recently demonstrated their knowledge and skills at the TEAMS (Tests of Engineering Aptitude, Mathematics, and Science) Competition at Widener University. The students earned respectable ranks over the course of the two-part academic exam -- including 14th, 15th, and 17th-place in the state -- working cooperatively as group members during the competition. 

The 2016 TEAMS Competition, "Engineering the Tools of Innovation," explored tools engineers use in areas such as space exploration, effective manufacturing, and microscopy. The challenges required critical job-readiness skills such as collaboration, analytical thinking, and multidimensional problem-solving. 

Cumberland Regional High School was represented at the competition by:  Anthony Adler, Leslie Baez, Connor Bondi, Robert Brown, Brett Bush, Kyle Bush, Jacob Butler, Vincent Ermilio, Katlynn Hewitt, Brianna Hicks, Logan Higgins, Andrew Jenkins, Edward Kennedy, Noah Klein, Philip Mezik, Kathryn Miller, Kelsey Pastirko, Nishee Patel, Rudy Pelaez, Abigail Riggins, Erik Rojas-Flores, John Skirvin, Natalie Smith, Savannah Soone, Ireland Styring, Max Tucker, and Reilly Weber.
