    (STEM). Open to students enrolled in or who have completed technology education courses, TSA’s membership includes more than 250,000 middle and high school students across the United States. TSA is supported by educators, parents and business leaders who believe in the need for a
    technologically literate society. Members learn through exciting competitive events, leadership opportunities and much more. The diversity
    of activities makes TSA a positive experience for every student. From engineers to business managers, our alumni credit TSA with a positive
    influence on their lives.

    TSA chapters take the study of STEM (science, technology, engineering, mathematics) beyond the classroom and give students the chance to pursue
    academic challenges among friends with similar goals and interests. Together, chapter members work on competitive events, attend conferences on
    the state and national levels and have a good time raising funds to get there. Chapter organization develops leadership, as members may become
    officers within their state and then run nationally. Our chapters are committed to a national service project and are among the most service-oriented groups in the community.
