Walnut Groves TSA Chapter returned from their CORE (Chapter Officer Retreat for Excellence) Field Trip which took place from September 9th to the 11th.

TSA or Student Technology Association is a club offered in high schools across The United States. The Club “...allows students to access resources and opportunities that typically wouldn't be available to them such as CNC Machining or 3D Printing-” said Zachary Schrack, President of Walnut Grove TSA. This is a huge deal for many because the mass majority of students otherwise wouldn't have access to tools and machines like CNC routers or 3D printers for rapid prototyping.
Not only does it give students access to tools to start their journey into STEM, Serenity Bynum, Vice President of WGHS TSA said, “TSA can also lead to students receiving scholarships and grants to continue furthering their education in the different fields TSA has.”
Students involved in TSA have the opportunities to attend conferences and different events with like-minded students and individuals in their fields of interest. This allows students to get their foot in the door. Additionally TSA allows students to become an active part in taking steps to not only benefit their own future but the school they represent and those around them.
Dr. Wheeler, TSA club sponsor at Walnut Grove stated, “The thing that makes TSA great is that it has something for everyone no matter their interest. Whether it be writing or programming, building things or tinkering with things, there's always something for everyone to find their own place in TSA.” This week TSA has been selling treats for students at the lunch concession stands to raise money and awareness for their club.
Be sure to look out for TSA events and support your School clubs as they go to competitions across Regional, State and National levels as they progress and push new and innovative ideas close towards being a reality.
