WYSE is short for Worldwide Youth in Science and Engineering. It is an academic competition sponsored by the University of Illinois, Schools of Engineering. Fourteen students compete as a team taking timed tests in the subjects of Biology, Chemistry, Computer Science, Engineering Graphics, English, Mathematics, and Physics. Students are allowed to take tests in only two subjects so that one student is not able to dominate the competition. Successful teams have many students that score well. Our history of success demonstrates that our students are receiving a quality education beginning with their parents…then grade school, middle school, and here at St. Teresa. Be a part of our tradition of academic success…join the WYSE team.
Our 2016 team was the regional champions, second place at the sectional competition and fourth at the state competition.
