Open to students enrolled in or who have completed technology education courses, TSA's membership includes over 150,000 middle and high school students in 2,000 schools spanning 48 states. TSA is supported by educators, parents and business leaders who believe in the need for a technologically literate society. Members learn through exciting competitive events, leadership opportunities and much more. The diversity of activities makes TSA a positive experience for every student. From engineers to business managers, our alumni credit TSA with a positive influence on their lives.

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.

75% college-bound 2,000 plus schools in 48 state delegations

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).

Initiatives

Engineering Alliance- Engineering Alliance offers a series of classroom level competitions and leadership development activities designed specifically for Project Lead The Way (PLTW)-affiliated middle and high school pre-engineering instructional programs. Proposed contests include electronic gaming, solving a design problem with STEM applications, CAD design, and building an engineering model. Leadership activities feature teamwork, communication and time management. Engineering Alliance is a partnership program of PLTW, TSA and SkillsUSA.

TSA VEX Robotics Competition- This competition provides an engaging platform through which students are exposed to the latest in robotics education, and concurrently, to opportunities that will further their knowledge in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) areas. Thecontest may be held on the local, state and national level of TSA. The TSA VEX Robotics Competition is made possible through funding from VEX Robotics, Inc.
