UNI TEECA Chapter competes in National Competition
Two weeks ago, 11 UNI students had the opportunity to compete at the Technology and Engineering Education Collegiate Association (TEECA) National Competition in Dallas, Texas, during the International Technology and Engineering Educators Association's (ITEEA) National Conference. UNI competed in five competitions: Robotics, Technology Challenge, Communications, Problem Solving and Transportation. The team competed very strongly in all of their competitions, with a third place finish in Robotics and a tie for third place in Problem Solving. They also had the prestigious honor of receiving the Outstanding Chapter Service Award, which is an award given to the TEECA chapter that best exemplifies the values of ITEEA: a focus on service to the community, school, and to the profession. The attendees were Frasier Dew, who is the current TECCA chapter and national president, Jessica Kingston, Grady Finchum, Sara Parris, Andrew Kringle, Benjamin Applegate, Baily Abbott, Jon Kutchen, Thad Nelson, Jacob Reid and Ryan Anderson. The team is mentored by UNI professor Dr. Greenhalgh, who has helped to ensure the team's continued success in both the organization and in life. Congratulations to these hardworking and dedicated individuals!
