Rendezvous Engineering Mathematics Science

R.E.M.S. - Rendezvous Engineering Math and Science is a fun science competition for students in grades 3-5. The REMS Competition is the result of the brainstorming and coordination of Rendezvous Science Center CEO Ben Foroozan and La Jolla High School Science Team Head Coach and Physics teacher Martin Teachworth. This is the fifth year that teams from TPES have participated in this program. Teams are usually made up of 5 students from the same grade.

REMS is designed to be a FUN, EXCITING and LOW STRESS Academic Bowl-style competition for teams of 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade students to determine the teams with the most overall knowledge in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM). The purpose of REMS is to encourage interest in STEM subjects, provide an outlet for interested students in a competitive but low stress environment, and help review for the Science and Mathematics portions of the California Content Standards tests.

R.E.M.S. teams learn how to work together, pool knowledge and come up with answers to challenging problems. This teaches teamwork skills that students need in order to succeed as they continue their education and ultimately join the work force.

Each Team Member will receive R.E.M.S. shirts & Certificate of Participation. Recognition Prizes are awarded to the top teams at each level. Fun prizes are also given out at the end of each competition.

Future Plans
Sponsor support for the R.E.M.S. program is appreciated. The program needs money to pay for the prizes and awards and to feed the Science Team helpers that stay after school without going home until after R.E.M.S. is over. It also pays for things like batteries and other incidental costs. The grants that supported REMS in the past are gone and the additional support is needed. This support could be money, donation of prizes, and by volunteering to coach or advise the teams. Students really enjoy the prizes, which are always about some aspect of science or technology. The prizes usually end up in the classrooms.

Section 5 of Article IX of the California Constitution guarantees students a “free public education.”
