Put your skills to the test with VEX and TSA!
The Technology Student Association (TSA) is a national non-profit organization for middle and high school students with a strong interest in technology. The TSA-VEX Robotics Competition provides students with a hands-on, co-curricular competition for learning about science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) and complements the existing technology-related competitions offered by TSA.
TSA-VEX Robotics teams compete either at events held at TSA state conferences or at other official VEX Robotics Competition tournaments. The season culminates with a championship event at the National TSA Conference. Specific details on events are available at RobotEvents.com.
TSA serves more than 150,000 students at 2,000 schools in 48 states. Learn more about how TSA fosters personal growth, leadership and opportunities in technology, innovation, design and engineering at http://www.tsaweb.org/.
