Lakeland team addresses engineering challenges

Area high school teams competed in two divisions during the annual TEAMS competition at Trine University. The Tests of Engineering Aptitude, Mathematics and Science competition, "Engineering Tomorrow's Cities," is based on the National Academy of Engineering grand challenge to "restore and improve urban infrastructure."

Students on 12 teams addressed engineering challenges in areas such as transportation, green space and fresh water supply during the February 20 competition.

Lakeland High School fielded two teams in Division I at the competition.

Lakeland High School’s 9th and 10th grade team members were Caleb Bennett, Joey Berry, Cole Miller and Christina Sanchez.

The 11th and 12th grade team members were Tristen Dominguez, Lukas Everhart, Zachery Johnston, Morgan Moore and Hunter Sams.

Both teams were coached by LHS engineering instructor Thom Taylor.
