This year two Middle School teams and one High School team qualified to attend the TEAMS national competition in Atlanta, Georgia, this summer. TEAMS is an annual STEM competition that challenges students to work collaboratively and apply their math and science knowledge in practical, creative ways to solve real everyday engineering challenges.


To prepare for the competition, each team has access to preparatory materials, competition scenarios, supplemental resources and tips for group decision-making and problem-solving strategies.


Good luck to all our teams in Atlanta.

The newly formed Middle School Robotics Club has entered a number of teams in the VEX competitions this year. The competitions challenge students to design and build a robot to play against other teams in a game-based engineering challenge. The High School recently hosted a statewide competition in association with Robot Revolution from Summit. The Middle School teams have made steady progress over the year, and in the last competition, advanced to the finals.

This year the Bridge Building division of the HS-STEM club visited Union County Collge for the annual competition. The competition tests the efficiency of the bridge building design with the emphasis being placed on both the weight of the bridge and how much weight it can hold. The NP teams are traditionally highly competitive in this competition, and this year, the novice teams placed third in the competition.
