TEAMS Testimonials

 

TEAMS Testimonials from TSA Advisors

TSA advisors who brought TEAMS to their school in 2015 were asked several questions about their participation in TEAMS.

Here are some of their answers:

“Why did you decide to offer TEAMS, in addition to TSA, to students at your school?”

 “We decided to offer TEAMS at our high school because of the rigor of the contest. We felt it was a great opportunity for our students and it fit with our program objectives for our Pre-Engineering Magnet program.”  Pam, TSA Advisor/TEAMS Coach, Texas

“I was looking for a way to involve advanced level students from AP physics/chemistry and students that were not enrolled in my classes.”  Jim, TSA Advisor/TEAMS Coach, Delaware

 “It was a natural fit for our highly competitive students.” William, TSA Advisor/TEAMS Coach, New Jersey

“TEAMS provides a wonderful opportunity for students to tackle a problem and work cooperatively as a team. It is what TEAMS and TSA is all about.”  Deborah, TSA Advisor/TEAMS Coach, New Jersey

“It was one way for students to see that what they are learning in math and science matters. We have a number of brilliant students who do not go past their books and formulas. I wanted them to experience that what they learn in school goes beyond what is in the book.”  Aileen, TSA Advisor/TEAMS Coach, Georgia

What benefits does TEAMS provide?

“Students must work together to decide how to work through problems. No one student can do it all – it is a team effort.” Sandy, TSA Advisor/TEAMS Coach, Washington

“Since TEAMS became a part of TSA, it has only made our participation in both programs easier.” Marie, TSA Advisor/TEAMS Coach, New Jersey

“You’ll see improvements in math, science, collaboration and organization.” Shane, TSA Advisor/TEAMS Coach, Kansas

“The students enjoyed working as a team and applying their math and science skills. I didn’t realize the students would enjoy it so much and do so well.” Denise, TSA Advisor/TEAMS Coach, New Jersey

“TEAMS offers students interested in all content areas an opportunity to demonstrate their strengths in a real-world challenge through a collaborative effort.” Josh, TSA Advisor/TEAMS Coach, New Jersey

“TEAMS encourages students to rely on their teammates and work together. It is an opportunity to compete against the best and brightest in the state and nation.” Bubba, TSA Advisor/TEAMS Coach, Georgia
