The Worldwide Youth in Science & Engineering (WYSE) Academic Challenge is a competitive series (i.e., regional, sectional, state) of tests created and administered by the University of Illinois and offered to high school students in Illinois and Missouri. The tests are now offered by more than 50 community colleges and universities and are designed to present a rigorous challenge to the brightest students. Test material is drawn from freshman level college curricula. Fenwick is a perennial state qualifier and won its last state championship as recent as April 2016.
