In early March, nearly 50 upper school students participated in the nationwide Junior Engineering Technical Society (JETS) competition at Stanford University. ore than 14,000 high school students partook in the competition across the country; the students worked in small teams of four to eight students to solve real-world engineering issues. The competition has two parts. The first is an objective engineering-related multiple choice test and the second is a subjective open-ended description of problem solutions and their defense.
The Harker teams scored as follows:
Grade 9 and 10 competition
Team A (sophomores) tied for 5th place
Team B (freshmen) tied for 9th place
Grade 11 and 12 competition
Team B (juniors) tied for 8th place
Team D (mixed team) tied for 13th place
Team C (mixed team) tied for 33rd place
Team A (seniors) tied for 75th place
Let’s congratulate the teams for their hard work at the competition.
