Tests of Engineering Aptitude, Mathematics, and Science (TEAMS) holds an annual STEM theme-based competition. Teams of four students apply STEM knowledge in creative ways to solve real-world engineering challenges. Mount Carmel's 9th Grade Team placed first in the state in the high school division and 8th Grade Team B finished first in the state in the middle school division.

This year, students were tasked with building paper roller coasters that would take a marble on a thirty-second trip. They were only allowed to use a limited supply of materials, including paper, string, foam board, masking tape, pencils, poster board, rubber band, paper clip, and transparent tape.
