Nearly every device or process we use comes from advances in STEM. From wireless communication to automobile design to space flight, science and mathematics are at the core of virtually every technological development. Memorial’s magnet program provides a rigorous education to prepare students for life in the twenty-first century. Our mission is to help students take the next step - enrolling in a university-level STEM program - with confidence in the field they have chosen and with the skills that will ensure their success.
We are looking for students who want to improve the world and help others while working in a creative, lucrative, fun field with low unemployment statistics. Dedicated instructors and mentors with experience in aerospace technology, robotics and computer-aided design have aligned TEAM’s rigorous curriculum with university engineering programs.
TEAM students compete in local, state, and national engineering competitions which provide a real-world, hands-on opportunity to apply what they have learned.
At TEAM the typical sequence of courses for engineering, science, and math is:
Introduction to Engineering Design, Pre-AP Biology, & Pre-AP Algebra II*
*Students may enroll in Pre-AP Algebra I in 9th grade with prior approval.
Digital Electronics, Pre-AP Physics, Pre-AP Geometry, Pre-Calculus
Principles of Engineering, AP Physics B, Pre-AP Chemistry, AP Calculus AB
AP Calculus BC; Choose 1 or more: AP Physics C, AP Chemistry, AP Biology, AP Environmental Science, AP Statistics, Anatomy & Physiology, Zoology/Botany
TEAM students may substitute Engineering Robotics for Digital Electronics and/or Principles of Engineering. Engineering Robotics is an elective class associated with our award winning robotics team. Students do not have to be enrolled in Engineering Robotics to participate on the team as an extracurricular activity.
TEAM requires a minimum of two years of foreign language in addition to all other TPS graduation requirements to prepare students for a global career.
