The Delaware Technology Student Association (DE TSA) State Conference was held on April 13-14, 2016 with nearly 800 students, advisors, and judges from 35 chapters from across the state to participate with nearly 1773 total contest entries in 65 contests. The top 3 medalists of each contest were recognized in each contest.
Sample contests included: Architecture, CAD, Digital Video Production, Dragster Design, Engineering Design, Flight, Maglev Vehicles, Robotics, Rocketry, Structural Engineering, System Control Technology, Video Game Design, and more. Each TSA competitive event requires students to apply engineering, technology, solve technical problems, conduct research, and invent solutions.
The Technology Student Association (TSA) is a Career and Technical Student Organization (CTSO) dedicated to students interested in the future of invention, innovation, engineering, and technology. Through TSA, members have the opportunity to participate in technology-focused competitive events, take part in community service work, and become leaders for the organization in their school, state, and at the national level. TSA incorporates curricular and co-curricular experiences to emphasize the importance of knowledge, leadership, skill development, and teamwork.
