HISTORY

The Oklahoma Technology Student Association got its start in 1977 when it was granted a charter as a state affiliate of the American Industrial Arts Student Association (AIASA) with just 4 chapters and 96 members.  By 1988, when AIASA would change its name to the Technology Student Organization (TSA), membership had grown to 117 chapters and nearly 3,000 members.  Today, with more than 18,000 members, Oklahoma TSA is the Career and Technology Student Organization (CTSO) dedicated exclusively to students enrolled in STEM classes.

MISSION

 

The mission of Oklahoma TSA is to enhance personal development, leadership and career opportunities in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) through intracurricular activities, competitions, and related programs.

MOTTO

Learning to Lead in a Technical World

CREED

"I believe that Technology Education holds an important place in my life in the technical world. I believe there is a need for the development of good attitudes concerning work, tools, materials, experimentation, and processes of industry.  Guided by my teachers, artisans from industry, and my own initiative, I will strive to do my best in making my school, community, state, and nation better places in which to live.

 

I will accept the responsibilities that are  mine. I will accept the theories that are supported by proper evidence. I will explore on my own for safer, more effective methods of working and living. I will strive to develop a cooperative attitude and will exercise tact and respect for other individuals. Through the work of my hands and mind I will express my ideas to the best of my ability. I will make my goal to do better each day the task before me, and to be steadfast in my belief in my GOD, and my fellow Americans."
