TSA offers a variety of volunteer opportunities for adults who are engaged in STEM careers and education. Whether you have a few hours or a few days, opportunities are available at every level - virtual (from your own computer), local, state, and national.
The Technology Student Association (TSA) is a national, non-profit organization of middle and high school students engaged in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). TSA offers over 60 STEM competitions that take place at both state and national conferences. TSA Volunteer Opportunities
Junior Solar Sprint (JSS) is funded by the Army Educational Outreach Program (AEOP) and managed by the Technology Student Association. JSS is a competition in which 5th – 8th grade students apply scientific understanding, creativity, experimentation, and teamwork to design, build, and race solar electric vehicles. Using the TSA event guidelines format, the JSS program is designed to support the instruction of STEM in categories such as alternative fuels, engineering design, and aerodynamics. Students have the opportunity to participate in Junior Solar Sprint through TSA chapters and Army-hosted locations across the country. JSS Volunteer Opportunities
Tests of Engineering Aptitude, Mathematics and Science (TEAMS) is a unique opportunity for students in middle and high school to work together to solve real-world engineering challenges. In 2017 students will answer questions and design solutions based on the theme “Engineering and the Environment.” TEAMS Volunteer Opportunities
UNITE is a pre-collegiate, academic, summer program for rising 9th through 12th grade students from groups historically underrepresented and underserved in STEM areas. The program is designed to encourage and help prepare students to pursue college-level studies and, ultimately, careers in engineering and related STEM fields. UNITE is funded by the Army Educational Outreach Program (AEOP) and managed by the Technology Student Association (TSA). UNITE Volunteer Opportunities
The App Challenge, part of Verizon Innovative Learning, is a nationwide contest in which middle and high school students are challenged to develop concepts for mobile apps that solve a problem in their community. The challenge is a unique, hands-on activity that teaches collaboration, critical thinking, problem solving, and entrepreneurship, as well as STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) skills and coding. Verizon App Challenge Volunteer Opportunities
The TSA VEX Robotics Competition (VRC) and the TSA VEX IQ Challenge (VIQC) provide students with exciting opportunities to learn about science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). These two competitions complement the technology-oriented events offered by TSA, and deliver the action-packed experience of VEX. The format of the TSA VEX competitions allows team members to participate in VEX events, as well as TSA competitive events and activities at the national TSA conference.
