Engineering Design HS
In 2008, the National Academy of Engineering tasked an international group of leading technological thinkers to identify the Grand Challenges for Engineering (GCE) in the 21st Century. Fourteen (14) game-changing goals for improving life on the planet were identified and grouped into the themes of sustainability, health, security, and joy of living. Applying leadership and 21st century skills in conjunction with the engineering design process, teams develop a solution to one of the grand challenges based on the annual theme posted on the TSA website under Competition Themes/Problems.
Event Guidelines are located on the National TSA website under your chapter advisor login screen, select Total TSA from the dropdown menu.
