2019 Kansas TSA State Conference
The 2019 TSA Kansas State Conference will be held at Webster Conference Center in Salina Kansas on April 17, 18 and 19. Students will be able to compete in over 30 middle school and 30 high school STEM related events. The Awards ceremony will be held Friday, April 19, at which time students may qualify for the National Conference in National Harbor near Washington DC.
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. Working individually or as a team, student members are motivated by the inspiration and enthusiasm gained from being recognized for the successful application of those skills.
