In the district competitions, many of Legend’s TSA members will be progressing to state.

TSA—the Technology Student Association—is the program to join if you are a technological affluent kind of person. It is an opportunity for students to take their learning in sciences, math, and engineering into applications. One of the most important aspects of TSA is competition where members have the opportunity to test their skills against other students. These competitions allow members to bond through completing difficult intellectual challenges.
“TSA has connected my team and I with a lot of people that share our same interests and in that way guided the creation of our company. It gave us the tools and inspiration to start building apps for personal benefit. I also participate in Software development with a few of my friends so we can all improve our overall skills within our personal software business,” said Steven Kuyon, 12
To complete the projects to compete in district, members had to spend numerous hours to design and create their projects. Many members spent long nights days before the competition to perfect their projects.
“The best part of the whole experience is the sense of completion at the end. A lot of time is spent with your friends building the projects so it’s really awesome when you get to finally present something you made to compete with,” said Kuyon.
The FractlyDev team placed in Webmaster, Software Developement, and Engineering Design, among other awards received by Legend students. These awards and experiences are relevant for the members not only today but for the rest of their careers.
“The skills and awards I earn through TSA will benefit me by first, having proof of my talent, and second providing me with experience relevant to what I want to do later in life. The best thing I got from this was friends,” said Ethan Alvey, 12
As Legend TSA students advance into state competitions, only more awards and success are to come.
