In addition we have four signature events on site, a VEX State Qualifier Tournament, a First Lego League Tournament, a Georgia TSA Electric Vehicle Rally, depending on interest, a VEX IQ Tournament and, of course FLC wouldn’t be complete without our iconic Armada Boat Race.

Engage in TSA STEM-based competitions – more than 70 are available – that address different interest areas and cover such topics as architecture, communications, engineering, leadership, and technology research.
Learn how to develop strong 21st century leadership skills through proven models, and then put them into practice at the local, state, and national TSA levels.
TSA has competitions for Engineering Students as well as Computer Science Students. Because these competitions are through TSA, TSA dress code must be followed in order to compete.
The Georgia Technology Student Association is a charter affiliate of National TSA and dedicated to middle and high school students enrolled or previously enrolled or that have an interest in engineering & technology education pathway and STEM Education programs. Georgia Technology Student Association (TSA) chapters prepare students to be successful inventors, designers, creative problem solvers, responsible citizens and leaders who will influence and build the future.
There are two logos. The left logo is the Georgia State TSA Logo. The right logo with the three bars, is the National Logo for the State of Georgia. This makes all state and territory logos more uniform for National Events.
