Students placing in the competition were Jack Yuill and Colton Tingler (technology problem solving), Colton Tingler (prepared presentation), Tristian Horn (essays on technology), Alex Walker (technological sketching), and Kyle Spurlock and Dalton Stuard (engineering design). In the dragster design category, Brett Collins, Craig Drenthe, and Colton Tingler placed 1st, 2nd, and 3rd for speed.
After competing in the Regional TSA competition, 20 to 25 students of the Sycamore High School TSA team plan to attend the state-level competition, which will be held in Murfreesboro in early March.
According to program documentation, TSA 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 approximately 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.
