At Mariner High School, its pancakes and pallet projects that bring lessons alive!

The Technology Student Association (TSA) is raising money to attend the state competition early next year in Orlando. They recently served pancakes at Applebee’s and sold student designed and built pallet projects to restaurant guests.

Up next is a regional competition November 16th in Bradenton to prepare for the state competition in February. The team’s goal is to raise $10,000. This month they are selling custom made key chains.

In TSA, students are self-motivated to learn how to bring their designs in robotics, flight endurance, fashion design, video game design, dragster, architecture, structural design and many more to life. Students compete and test their abilities to innovative prompts of engineering problem-solving. They work alongside teachers, classmates, and special guest volunteers to engage in project-based learning. TSA provides students a co-curricular opportunity that gives them experiences that better prepare them for their postsecondary education or career after high school.

TSA’s membership includes more than 250,000 middle and high school students in approximately 2,000 schools across 48 states and is open to students enrolled in or who have completed technology education courses. The diversity of projects and opportunities for students to collaborate with each other is limitless. Educators, parents and business leaders who believe in the need for a technologically literate society support TSA. TSA is the true definition of cross-curricular collaboration to ensure students are enthusiastic about S.T.E.A.M. (science, technology, engineering, art, mathematics).

The Platinum Sponsor of Mariner’s TSA team for the last eight years is Jet’s Pizza. They have also received support from PureSource, Go Mulch and Florida Torque Converter. Businesses or individuals wishing to support the team should contact Pamela King at 239-772-3324 or PamelaBK@LeeSchools.net
