Eight HGP students compete in national engineering competition
A group of eight Holy Ghost Prep students traveled to Atlanta, Georgia this past weekend to compete in the 2018 Tests of Engineering Aptitude, Mathematics, and Science (TEAMS) national competition. TEAMS is a competition for high school students designed to help them discover their potential for engineering.
Daniel Behr, Louie DeLuna, Colton El-Habr, Henry Fina, Matthew McGrath, Charles Mshomba, Krishna Mysore, and Matthew Watanabe qualified for the TEAMS’ national competition by placing second in the state of Pennsylvania in the 9th/10th grade division.
The national competition consisted of a digital media challenge, a problem solving competition, and a prepared presentation—all related to “Engineering a Greener World,” the theme of this year’s competition.
The students were accompanied to TEAMS’ national competition in Atlanta by two members of Holy Ghost’s Prep’s science department, Dr. Stephen Tomshaw and Amanda Coopersmith.
