Junior Solar Sprint (JSS) is an educational program for 5th through 8th grade students with the goal of creating the fastest, most interesting, and best crafted solar-vehicle possible. Students have the opportunity to participate in JSS through TSA chapters, Army hosted locations and middle schools across the country or through their middle school! JSS is designed to support the instruction of STEM exploring topics such as alternative fuels, engineering design, and aerodynamics.
The TSA VEX Robotics Competition (VRC) and the TSA VEX IQ Challenge (VIQC) provide students with exciting opportunities for learning about science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). These events complement the existing technology-related competitions offered by TSA, and involve the same action-packed experience of VEX events. The format of the TSA VEX competitions allows team members to participate in VEX events and TSA competitive events and activities at the national TSA conference.
