Tips and Tricks from the Pros @ NCTSA

This summer we asked several of our North Carolina TSA advisors to provide short videos about TSA for our new Technology, Engineering and Design Teachers in North Carolina. Now that school is starting back, we thought that we should share the videos with all of you. These videos will help you as you start a new chapter and a new year.

Videos are provided by Mt Pleasant Middle School (Zachary Trivett), Apex Friendship High School (Will Holler), Charles B. Aycock High School (Paul Casey), Alleghany Middle Schools (Hillary Bowlin) and Highland School of Technology (Nancy Taliaferro) and Wayne School of Engineering (Julie Heath, Julie Brown and Heather Lancaster).

What is TSA?

The Technology Student Association is a non-profit national student organization devoted to teaching technology education to young people. TSA’s mission is to inspire its student members to prepare for careers in a technology-driven economy and culture. The demand for technological expertise is escalating in American industry. Therefore, TSA’s teachers strive to promote technological literacy, leadership, and problem solving to their student membership.

Students are challenged to use and improve their STEM skills in both team and individual events in such areas as: communication; design and engineering; environmental systems; transportation; and manufacturing/construction.
