GCM TSA Headed to State

After competing in several area and regional competitions, the Goose Creek Memorial High School Technology Student Association (TSA) members are state bound to compete in Video Game Design, Board Game Design, Structural Engineering, Software Design, Engineering Design, Engineering CAD, Flight Endurance (Engineering) Systematic Control Technology, Technology Bowl, Graphic Solutions for Marketing and IT, Forensic Science, Chapter Team, Music Production, Video Production (Mockumentry) and On Demand Video Production. They also are first alternates in Dragster Design and Technology Debate.


Shonda James and Sean McGregory, GCM teachers, have coached the first-year TSA team through a strong year, culminating in the state competition to be held in Ft. Worth April 25-17.


“As a brand new team, there is a lot of trial by fire and problem solving for both coaches and students alike. We hope to attract industry and business partners interested in mentoring students in our GCM Engineering/IT departments and building a stronger team through mentoring TSA projects and establishing a local competition,” James said. “Next year, we hope to add tour competition list with VEX Robotics, Drone Racing, RC Racing (Flight and Ground), Animatronics, CAD Architecture, Architecture Design and several other speaking and team events.”
