Dragon TSA team to compete at Technosphere, May 3-5

Posted on

2019 TSA teamEvery spring, the Virginia Association of the Technology Student Association hosts its annual leadership conference, Technosphere. The Technosphere Conference held at the Hampton Convention Center is the highlight of the Virginia TSA year and provides an incredible opportunity for members to compete, lead, and learn through competitive events for middle and high school students, leadership workshops and officer campaigning, and other special events.

During Technosphere, members gain experience and insight through networking with other students, teachers, parents, and members of the business community. These interactions throughout Technosphere strengthen the goals of innovation and collaboration through science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education. Members exercise their technical knowledge, leadership skills, and professionalism as they engage in over 60 competitive events, the Virginia TSA service project, and membership sessions during their experience at Technosphere.

The Technosphere experience is not to be missed as a member of Virginia TSA.
