Why TSA?

The Technology Student Association (TSA) provides student members the opportunity to explore a wide variety of STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) education and career-interest areas. 

 

All TSA middle school competitions and high school competitions are correlated with national STEM standards and can be integrated into and enhance a school STEM curriculum. Participation in TSA competitions allows TSA members to apply technology and engineering skills in challenging and innovative ways. Working individually or as a team, TSA members are motivated by the inspiration and enthusiasm gained from being recognized for the successful application of those skills.

  • Local, state, and national competitive events 

  • Career awareness opportunities

  • 21st century leadership skills activities 

  • Technology literacy development

  • National service project

  • Networking activities

  • Scholarship and award opportunities
