The Technology Student Association [TSA] is a national organization of students engaged in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics [S.T.E.M.]. It is open to students who are taking one of our three CTE courses and is supported by educators, parents, and business leaders who believe in the need for a technologically literate society. Our students learn through exciting competitive events, leadership opportunities and much more.

Our CTE Engineering teacher works with TTU to bring university engineering students to his classroom for demonstrations and simulations of engineering in real-world situations.This connectivity to a post-secondary institution permits students to obtain a greater understanding of career exploration and its possibilities in the field of engineering. Our local radio station visits with our communication students to stimulate interest in all aspects of radio. These scheduled events were cancelled this year due to COVID-19 but will be rescheduled as soon as we are able.
Project Based Learning (PBL) is a constructivist instructional approach where students are engaged in meaningful inquiry of personal interest to them and where collaboration and personalized learning are emphasized. Research confirms that PBL is an effective and enjoyable way to learn and develop deeper learning competencies required for success in college, career and civic life.
