The Delaware Technology Student Association (DETSA) State Conference was held on April 25-26, 2018 with nearly 900 students, advisors, and judges from 35 chapters from across the state to participate with nearly 1746 total contest entries in 62 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. A list of the 2018 contest winners is here.
State finalists have earned the opportunity to represent Delaware at the 40th Annual National TSA Conference to be held in Atlanta, Georgia (June 22–26, 2018) where nearly 7,000 students from throughout the world will compete for top honors.
