TSA prepares for state
The Technology Student Association is hard at work putting the final touches on their projects for the upcoming state conference being held at the end of February at the Denver Tech Center.
TSA promotes science, engineering, mathematics and technology (STEM) in schools across the state and nation. The Heritage chapter is headed by club president Ethan Johnston ’14 who is excited about the upcoming conference.
“I have been in TSA ever since sixth grade. I remember I was really interested in the CO₂ cars and ever since my first year in it, I have moved on to more competitions that I like,” says Johnston.
TSA has a variety of competitions. Johnston is competing in such competitions as promotional graphics, Tech bowl and t-shirt design.
With the state conference coming up soon, TSA members are working on completing their projects with the hopes of Nationals.
“My goal for this conference is to place high enough to be able to go to Nationals. And I also want to have fun at my last TSA conference,” says TSA Officer Jacob Williams ’14.
“This year has gone a lot smoother than previous years with the club and I have really enjoyed being president. The only go
al left is to place at state” says Johnston.
Even with the spirit of competition, TSA is more than just placing at conferences.
“TSA combines a lot of skills like problem solving and teamwork that are useful in real life and add to your overall work ethic,” says Williams.by
