On February 10, 19 Baldwin Middle and Upper School students attended the regional competition of the Technology Student Association (TSA), which is the only student organization devoted exclusively to the needs of students engaged in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). Open to students enrolled in or who have completed technology education courses, TSA's membership includes over 200,000 middle and high school students in over 2,000 schools spanning 49 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. Through TSA, members have the opportunity to travel to exciting places across the country and the chance to form lasting connections with students of similar interests and diverse backgrounds.
TSA offers more than 30 competitive events for members to choose from. Events receive expert judging by technology educators and industry representatives. Members are rewarded not only with ribbons or trophies but also with memories of the camaraderie and the challenge of a TSA conference.
Events fall into three categories:
On-site Events – these events are done mostly on the day(s) of the conference; some student preparation prior to the conference is required
Display Events – the bulk of the work for these events is done prior to the conference; students prepare the events and then present them at the conferences for judging
Leadership Events – these events focus on students' leadership abilities such as teamwork, public speaking and poise
