Are you interested in enhancing your career and technical education (CTE) program and inspiring your students to become science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) industry leaders? Consider the Technology Student Association (TSA) to achieve these goals. Serving as a TSA chapter advisor at your school means that you and your members are part of a national organization that promotes and recognizes excellence in STEM through: 

  • Curriculum Integration – TSA helps teachers meet the criteria for STEM education goals through exciting programs that include activities, competitions, leadership, and teamwork for students. 
  • Competitive Events – Each year TSA brings together leading technology and engineering educators with hands-on classroom experience to revise, review, and develop competitions at the middle or high school level. 
  • Leadership – TSA recognizes the value of strong leadership skills, and offers a customized leadership program, LEAP—which stands for “Leadership. Education. Achievement. Personal Growth.” 
  • State, and National Events – These events provide student members with the opportunity to apply and test their STEM skills; then members may choose to attend and/or compete at the annual National TSA Conference.
