Eight Seneca Valley freshmen and sophomores recently took second place in the Pennsylvania TEAMS Engineering Competition. Hosted at Seneca Valley over several weeks in February and March, this year’s TEAMS competition theme was Brain Engineering. Students solved problems related to neural networks, cognitive neuroscience, decision trees, human behavior and more. The Seneca Valley team researched and wrote an essay on self-driving vehicles, designed a device to rescue a bear cub, and had the number one score in the state in problem solving. SV team members include, pictured from left, Julian Town, Rayan Ghaffar, Zach Garcia, Dawson Ward, Connor Anderson, Nathan Sloan, David Choi, Ty Brinkley.
