TEAMS (Test of Engineering Aptitude, Mathematics, and Science) is an
academic competition that requires high school students to use mathematics
and science skills to solve a series of problem sets that are equivalent
to college freshman-level course work.
The competition is held at the
University of Hawaii at Manoa Campus Center Ball Room. Over a dozen
high school teams from the state of Hawaii participated in the 2003
