GMHS Students Compete in Nashville

Posted on July 1, 2016, in Academics, Events



General McLane High School students made their first appearance at the National TEAMS (Tests of engineering aptitude in mathematics and science) competition this week, after placing second in the state and 12th nationally in April.

The national competition was in Nashville June 28 through June 30. Students presented their plan for colonization of the moon as a first step to planetary exploration. They also took a test on lenses and optics, and participated in a problem solving activity that involved building a reflecting device.

The GM team that qualified is comprised of all seniors and includes Peter Dilla, Justin Layden, Cory Kephart, Kyle Sult, Ryan Carpenter (Captain), Jordan Motter, Evan Sneed and Cuinn Larmon. Its advisor is GMHS teacher David Treusch.

This achievements stems from results for the TEAMS competition. TEAMS is an annual STEM competition challenging students to work collaboratively and apply their math and science knowledge in practical, creative ways to solve real everyday engineering challenges.

Congratulations to our students on this wonderful achievement!
