Utah TSA members represent students with many interests and talents. The scope of technology continues to expand and as a result the TSA competitive events are wide ranging. There is not an employer today that does not seek the most technologically literate employees who have the leadership and organizational skills of a TSA member.

TSA fosters personal growth, leadership, and opportunities in technology, innovation, design, and engineering. Members apply and integrate science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) concepts through co-curricular activities, competitions and related programs.

If you are not a member of TSA and would like to become a member, talk to your school counselor to get connected with the TSA advisor in your school.
