A group from Daniel Boone High School in Technology Student Association (TSA) recently competed in their Regional Competition in Stroudsburg. Students chose to compete in between one and six events. Placement in these events qualifies them to compete at the State competition April 18-21 in Seven Springs, Pa. TSA allows students to explore STEM career opportunities and develop skills in the fields reached by technology ranging from architecture and fashion, to coding and video and game design. We thank the administration and school board for allowing TSA to help these students develop their skill sets.
