Jets

JETS stands for Junior Engineering and Technology Society and is a club of students talented in science and math. These students meet once a week, from September to March, preparing for a spring statewide competition against different schools. At least one team of eight students represents each school. The competition is split into two 90-minute parts in which the whole team works together to solve a given problem. In part I, 100 multiple choice questions are given to the team dealing with air transportation, bridge design, rehabilitation, food analysis, solar-powered vehicles, and food preservation. Dealing with these same issues from part I, in the second half, the students interpret and defend open-ended problems. The first half of the problems are scored for state and local rankings and the second part is ranked nationally.
