The Technology Student Association (TSA) provides student members the opportunity to explore a wide variety of (science, technology, engineering, and math) STEM career interest areas. All TSA competitions—more than 60 middle and high school events combined—are correlated with national STEM standards and can be integrated into and enhance STEM curriculum.
Participation in TSA competitions allows TSA members to apply technology and engineering skills in challenging and innovative ways.
