ATLANTA, GA – Eight New Providence High School students and nine New Providence Middle School students participated in the National TSA (Technology Student Association) conference in Atlanta, GA  which took place June 22-25, 2018. The high school team competed at the 9th-10th grade level in the TEAMS competition. They ranked third in their problem solving challenge (winning  a trophy) and ninth in their digital media submission out of  55 teams.  The middle school had two teams competing in the TEAMS competition.  NPMS Team two ranked second in their problem solving challenge (winning  a trophy) and Team 1 ranked tenth in their digital media submission out of 35 participating teams.

Some members of the high school team had attended the 2016 TSA National conference in Nashville as middle school students and were happy to qualify again as high school students.  The state qualification round was held in March at NJIT.  Both middle and high school  students participated in the TEAMS (Tests of Engineering Aptitude, Mathematics and Science) competition which is a series of engineering based assessments. This competition incorporated a design and build activity, test and essay at the state level.

The national competition consisted of three parts – a digital media (video) promoting an engineering consulting firm that specializes in promoting a sustainable future,  a prepared presentation [poster and five minute oral presentation] on an innovation in transportation infrastructure based on sustainable criteria and then a 90 minute problem solving challenge.
