    THE ASSOCIATION


    The Technology Student Association (TSA) is a national, non-profit organization for middle and high school students with a strong interest in technology. Since TSA was chartered in 1978 over 2,000,000 students have participated.

    MEMBERSHIP

    The Technology Student Association (TSA) is open to all Auburn Riverside High School students. TSA is usually run through the Engineering and Architecture classes offered by Mr. Sumner but any student can join. For more information stop by room 503 or send an email. wsumner@auburn.wednet.edu

    MISSION
    The Technology Student Association fosters personal growth, leadership, and opportunities in technology, innovation, design, and engineering. Members apply and integrate science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) concepts through co-curricular activities, competitive events and related programs.

    Competitions

    TSA provides rules and guidelines to its student members and advisors for thirty-two middle school level and thirty-three high school level competitive events. Competitions feature problems in communications, design and engineering, environmental systems, manufacturing/construction, and transportation. In both team and individual events, students are challenged to use and improve their skills in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) areas. All competitions are aligned with STEM standards, The 16 Career Clusters (State’s Career Clusters Initiative), and ten core leadership skills (communication, creative thinking, critical thinking, decision making, ethics, evaluation, organization, problem solving, self-esteem, and teamwork)

    The VEX Robotics Design System offers students an exciting platform for learning about areas rich with career opportunities spanning science, technology, engineering and math (STEM). These are just a few of the many fields students can explore by creating with VEX Robotics technology. Beyond science and engineering principles, a VEX Robotics project encourages teamwork, leadership and problem solving among groups. It also allows educators to easily customize projects to meet the level of students’ abilities. The affordable VEX platform is expanding rapidly and is now found in middle schools, high schools and university labs around the globe. Robotics hobbyists also appreciate the advanced capabilities of the VEX System.

    TSA and VEX have partnered to spread the word about STEM Education & Competition.

    The Technology Student Association (TSA) is a national non-profit organization for middle and high school students with a strong interest in technology. Members apply and integrate science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) concepts through co-curricular activities, competitive events and related programs. TSA VEX Robotics tournaments will be conducted at participating State Conventions and the annual National Convention. More information on the TSA-VEX Robotics Competition is available here.
