At the seventh and eighth grade level, teams are presented with activities that promote higher level thinking and problem solving.
During the competition, teams are asked to solve problems in many areas of academic instruction. Team Quest includes activities in music, the arts, geography, language arts, science, and math. Teams are challenged to apply their knowledge to real life problems incorporating creativity, imagination, and engineering into the events.
