OTEEA STEM Webinar Ohio Technology Student Association - September 27
On Monday September 27th OTEEA hosted a webinar focused on Ohio TSA. The webinar covered topics like who can join how to start a TSA Chapter, the costs involved, contests students can participate in, and many other topics. TEE teacher Todd Hummer from Lakota East High School is the Ohio State TSA advisor. He had two students who are state officers participate in the webinar. They were Jack and Illyas. Both are seniors at Lakota East High School and have been involved in TSA since their 8th grade year. These students talked about their experiences in TSA. They talked about what is was like to participate in both the state and national competitions. They discussed how their club meetings went from the 8th grade through their high school career. Both talked about how TSA has helped them firm up their desire to go into a STEM career after high school.
TSA offers 39 high school competitions and 37 middle school competitions that are categorized by careers in Architecture and Construction Technology, Communications Technology, Computer Science and Information Technology, Leadership, Manufacturing and Transportation Technology, STEM (General), STEM and the Arts, and Technology and Research. TSA competitions are offered in a traditional format in the classroom and virtually.
