Over two dozen students from the Center for Advanced Technical Studies (The Center) competed in the South Carolina Technology Student Association (TSA) Conference in March. Students representing engineering disciplines, digital art and media production, machine tool, as well as the architecture program placed in all of their respective competitions.
The Technological Student Association (TSA) is a non-profit organization of high school student members who are interested in STEAM-related careers. The organization engages students and their faculty advisors through extracurricular activities, leadership opportunities, and community service. TSA chapters prepare students to be successful and creative problem solvers, responsible citizens, and leaders in a technological society.
Students who placed first in the state competitions will be participating in the National TSA Conference in Dallas, Texas June 26-30.
