TSA is a Department of Education encouraged activity that can enhance a technology education program, build confidence, provide extra-curricular and leadership skills for students, and add an exciting dimension to the teaching profession. We encourage our current chapters to re-affiliate, and invite former chapters and new affiliates to join in on the exciting opportunities provided by a TSA membership.
Visit this Florida TSA website on a regular basis for valuable information on conferences, discussion forums, sponsors, board member and state officer links, etc. This site is designed to promote Florida TSA throughout the State of Florida.

National TSA History
The Technology Student Association (TSA), formerly AIASA, is the oldest student organization dedicated exclusively to students enrolled in technology education classes grades K-12. It has a rich history that spans three decades. Three distinct periods may be found in TSA’s history. During the period from 1958 to 1978, the American Industrial Arts Student Association (AIASA) was a sponsored activity of the American Industrial Arts Association (AIAA). In 1978, the nonprofit corporation, AIASA, Inc., was formed to oversee AIASA as a separate organization. During the decade that followed, the organization grew in size, strength, structure, and impact on students and secondary school programs. The summer of 1988 closed this third decade as AIASA reached another milestone, a change in the organization’s name: the Technology Student Association (TSA).
