Do you like to build things? Do you like to see how things work? Are you a problem solver that likes to tinker?
If so the Technology Student Association (TSA) Club at Powell may be the club for you.

TSA is designed to further the understanding of all areas of technology from Communications Technology, Manufacturing Technology, Construction Technology, Transportation, Agriculture and Biotechnology, and Power and Energy. Through hands-on project-based learning, students will be exploring all of these areas of technology; they will integrate STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math), discover career opportunities, and strengthen individual and team leadership skills. Students will prepare for individual challenges such as CO2 Dragster Design, Mouse Trap Tractor Pull, Giant Jenga Competition, and Flight to group events such as Castle Ballistics, Video Game Design, Video Production, and more. Students will compete at the state TSA Competition in February and possibly qualify for the National competition during the summer. Meetings are held in Room 1210.

TSA meets Wednesdays after school and below are the meeting dates.  Also, please note specific deadlines. Some meetings will be REQUIRED for all students attending the STATE Competition. There will also be specific deadlines. If meetings or deadlines are not met you risk being removed from the competition.
