A team of Tucker Middle School eighth-grade students has earned top honors in a statewide student engineering competition.

The students took first place in the middle school division of the Tests of Engineering Aptitude, Mathematics, and Science (TEAMS) event, an annual competition for middle and high school students designed to help students discover their potential for engineering. During this one-day competition at the University of Georgia, students apply math and science knowledge in practical, creative ways to solve real-world engineering challenges.
