Our chapter has over 150 student members at Panther Creek. Members are registered with National TSA which includes more than 250,000 middle and high school students across the United States. ​TSA is supported by educators, parents, and business leaders who believe in the need for a technologically literate society. Members learn through exciting competitive events, leadership opportunities, and much more. A wide range of activities makes TSA a positive experience for every student.

Chapter

Our chapter was founded during the 2010/2011 school year by Mr.Holler. We have competed and often won at the regional, state, and national level for TSA. 

Competitions

Imagine an activity so captivating that your students spend hours working on it for weeks at a time. That is what can happen when TSA members engage in TSA competitions. Only TSA members have the opportunity to compete at exciting state conferences and then at the annual National TSA Conference. Expert judging by technology and engineering educators and industry representatives inspires the best from participants. Members are rewarded not only with medals or trophies, but also with memories of the camaraderie and the challenge of participating in a National TSA Conference.

TSA competitions include categories such as Biotechnology Design, Career Prep, Coding, CompTIA ITF+ Certification, Cybersecurity, Digital Photography, Dragster Design, Flight, Leadership Strategies, Medical Technology, Prepared Presentation, Software Development, Technology Problem Solving, Video Game Design, Webmaster, and much more. 

Curriculum Integration

Many of the events are intra-curricular and are found in projects and skills learned from both Mr. Curran’s & Mr.Shirley’s courses.​ (Digital Design and Animation, Game Art and Design, Technology Engineering and Design, and Technological Design)
