I am raising funds to help pay for attendance at the National Technology Student Association (TSA) in Atlanta, GA this June. I was able to qualify in three events at the Colorado State Convention. In addition I have...
We've got a good start. Please help us with donations of any amount to help Tyler help pay for his Technology Student Assoc. convention trip. Every little bit helps.
STEM School Highlands Ranch TSA
Dear Prospective Sponsor:
Hello my name is Tyler Sayre and I am at STEM Highlands Ranch in 7th grade. I joined the Technology Student Association (TSA) at the beginning of the school year and had no idea how much it would change me. I joined multiple teams and prepared for State in February. I had so much fun and met so many people through this process and are now great friends. At State the teams I was involved with all placed in the top 3. The events I participated in are listed below.
Off the Grid - Throughout the world, people are working to become more self-sustaining when it comes to landscaping and architectural design. Sometimes the purpose is to live off the grid, and other times it is to create a smaller carbon footprint. There are many options throughout the world, but sometimes a location limits or enables those options. In this event, participants conduct research on a sustainable architectural design for a home in a country of the team's choosing. Participants will create a display and a model. The model can be of the home the team designed or of a specific aspect of their design. Semifinalist teams will give a presentation and are interviewed about their design. At State, the team and I won 3 place.
Community Service Video – Participants must create and submit a video that depicts the local TSA chapter’s service with the American Cancer Society, national TSA’s community service partner. For State in February, the team and I won first place.
Construction Challenge - Participants submit a scale model/prototype with a portfolio that documents the use of their leadership and technical skills to fulfill an identified community need related to construction. At state we won first place. We are making a scooter/storage/bench thing in our Middle School front office, we presented a proposal to the PTO and they awarded us $2,000 for the project.
Since state, I have joined other events and am competing at Nationals in Biotechnology, Website Design, and TEAMS.
Biotechnology – Conduct research on a contemporary biotechnology issue of their choosing, document their research, and create a display. The information gathered may be student-performed research or a re-creation or simulation of research performed by the scientific community. If appropriate, a model or prototype depicting some aspect of the issue may be included in the display. Semifinalist teams make a presentation and are interviewed about their topic.
Web Design – Design, build, and launch a website that features the team's ability to incorporate the elements of website design, graphic layout, and proper coding techniques.
TEAMS – A one-day competition for students in middle and high school that allows them to apply their knowledge of skills in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) to issues facing our global society. Focused on an annual theme, original academic and innovative concepts are developed for the competition based on the National Academy of Engineering’s Grand Challenges. Engaging in the challenges requires critical job-readiness skills such as teamwork, analytical thinking, and multi-dimensional problem solving.
I am looking forward to Nationals and am looking for sponsorship to cover the travel costs for the event. I want to thank you in advance for any support you can provide.
