Press release from Red Bank Regional High School

On April 2, students from Red Bank Regional High School Academy of Pre-Engineering (PLTW) competed and excelled in the New Jersey State Technology Student Association Technology (TSA) Competition, held at the College of New Jersey.

More than 1,600 students from throughout the state participated in this year’s competition, for which the theme was “The Spirit of Innovation.” RBR students brought home several first place wins. Huston Migdon of Bradley Beach, took first place in Prepared Presentation, and Alisa Orisini of Shrewsbury won first place for Flight Endurance. For her entry, Alisa had to build, fly, and trim a model airplane to make a long endurance flight inside a contained airspace.

The team of Ian Stafford (Little Silver), Austin Turner (Union Beach) and Brad Tully (Belmar) took second place in System Control Technology. They worked to develop a systematic solution to a problem, and build a computer controlled model to represent and illustrate their solution.

Their advisor, Pre-Engineering teacher Kathryn Hawley explains, “The students designed a prototype for an automated telescope that would rotate 360 degrees, track and take pictures of gamma ray bursts, and return to the home position, ready for the next GRB (Gamma Ray Bursts)!”

With their stellar showings at the state level, these RBR students have now qualified to compete at the TSA National Conference, which takes place from June 27 to July 1 in Washington, D.C.  Over 6,000 competitors are expected at this year’s conference.

The Technology Student Association is the oldest student organization dedicated exclusively to students enrolled in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) courses. Its membership includes over 200,000 middle school and over 2,000 high schools in 49 states.
