Fenwick High School is the state champion once again after placing first and second in the TEAMS (Tests of Engineering Aptitude, Mathematics and Science) Competition that was held at the Illinois Institute of Technology on March 8, 2013. This marks the 20th title in science competitions the school has captured under head coach Ramzi Farran, including 13 in this event.
One of the highlights of Fenwick's success in the competition was the performance of its first team, which earned a score that was the highest among all divisions in Illinois and the fourth highest in the nation. Its freshman and sophomore teams also did well, earning second and third place in their division.
TEAMS is considered the premier science competition in the state. It is an annual theme-based competition that provides students in grades nine through 12 with the opportunity to discover engineering, to use science, technology, engineering and mathematics to solve challenges, and to learn how they can make a difference in the world.
The first and second teams who participated in the competition for Fenwick were made up of the following students.
