The Technology Student Association fosters personal growth, leadership, and opportunities in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics. Students work on projects as part of our class and can also work on personal projects that qualify based on the rulebooks below. The regional competition is in March, state competition in April, and national competition in June. For the past several years, our numbers that qualify for each level have grown along with our successes.

Individual wood project

One of our students created a bookshelf resembling a tree. The branches were the shelves and the backdrop was painted with chalkboard paint, allowing the user to decorate it as they wished. It was a popular stopping point at the competition for attendees to include their artwork.
