The Roselle Park High School robotics team has qualified to compete in the Technology Student Association (TSA) VEX National Championship in Texas.
“This is only our second year competing in VEX robotics leagues. We are not a technology or engineering high school, yet our students have advanced to a competitive level,” says a statement online seeking funds. “Unfortunately, as we are a new team, we do not have the funding to travel to Texas for the competition.”
Over 200,000 middle and high school students nationwide aspire to be future engineers, scientists and technologists through the Technology Student Association.
The TSA is a national student organization devoted to the needs of students engaged in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM).
The 2015 National TSA Conference will be held from June 28 to July 2 at the Gaylord Texan Resort in Grapevine, Texas in the greater Dallas area.
During this annual conference over 65 middle school and high school technology-based student competitions will be held. Also taking place will be leadership training, the TSA Meet and Greet, and a program sponsored by TSA’s national service partner, the American Cancer Society.
Approximately 5,000 people from across the country are expected to attend.
Michal Mazewski won first place in autonomous programming, and Angel Castillo, Ricardo Mendez-Luna, and Brandon Mishoe captured third place overall at the VEX Robotics competition in February. Other award winners from the school are Lexi Tumblety, Thomas Sampson and Hedison Vasquez.
