Student leaders announce Delaware STEM contest results
Delaware Technology Student Association (DETSA) leaders announce the Virtual State Awards Ceremony results for 2021. Middle schools and high schools from throughout Delaware participated in advanced contests such as: architectural design; biotechnology; coding; cybersecurity; data science and analytics; digital video production; engineering design; fashion design and technology; forensic technology; geospatial technology; inventions & innovations; mechanical engineering; medical technology; music production technology; STEM animation; photographic technology; system control technology; website design; video game design; and more. Due to the global COVID-19 pandemic, all contests started in February and concluded in April.
All events required students to apply science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) to solve complex technical problems, conduct research, and invent solutions. The Technology Student Association (TSA) is a Career and Technical Student Organization (CTSO) dedicated to students interested in the future of invention, innovation, engineering, and technology. Through TSA, students work in teams, participate in competitive events, and deliver community service, while applying their leadership skills at the school, state, and national level. TSA incorporates curricular and co-curricular experiences to emphasize the importance of knowledge, leadership, skill development, and teamwork. Top medalists will earn the opportunity to represent Delaware at the National Virtual TSA Conference that is planned for June 1–25. To learn more about DETSA, please visit: www.detsa.org.
