Press release from Red Bank Regional High School
A team of eight Red Bank Regional High School students competed in this year’s Technology Student Association (TSA) state conference contests, which were held on May 5 at the College of New Jersey. More than 1400 students from all over the Garden State competed in over 60 technology-based events.
During the event, RBR senior Elisa Orsini (Shrewsbury) placed second in Flight Endurance, and junior Jose Ramirez (Red Bank) placed third in Transportation modeling. The other students who represented RBR were Jorge Benavides (Red Bank), Erick Camerino (Red Bank), Edwin Castillo (Red Bank), Javier Molina (Deal), Vincent Novellino (Millstone) and Ricky Wild (Belmar). All of the students are members of RBR’s TSA Club, which is advised by RBR Pre-Engineering teacher Kathryn Hawley.
Ms. Hawley comments, “Every year the TSA becomes more competitive and the students need to start earlier in the school year to develop their skills in a particular event in which they feel they have the best opportunity to excel. We are all looking forward to the 2015-2016 competitions.”
The TSA 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 in the U.S. For more information visit their website at www.tsaweb.org.
