Students bring home awards from 2017 Delaware Technology Student Association conference
Last week more than 1,000 students, advisers and judges from business and industry participated in the 39th annual Delaware Technology Student Association conference. Almost 40 schools were represented in more than 65 contests.
Medalists will represent Delaware at the National Technology Student Association conference to be held in Orlando, Florida this summer. Contestants will participate in events such as architecture, CAD, digital video production, dragster design, engineering design, flight, robotics, structural engineering, system control technology, video game design and much more.
Each Delaware Technology Student Association contest required the students to apply engineering and technology to solve problems and invent solutions. The Delaware Technology Student Association is a career and technical student organization that is dedicated to students who are interested in pursuing careers in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). Through the Delaware Technology Student Association, members have the opportunity to participate in engineering-, leadership-, and technology-focused competitive events. They take part in community service projects, and they work to practice leadership skills.
The Technology Student Association incorporates curricular and co-curricular experiences for all students to emphasize the importance of critical thinking, knowledge, leadership, skill development, and the application of teamwork to prepare members to become the leaders of tomorrow.
