Professor named to board of directors of Technology Student Association
Dr. Kenneth Reid, director of freshman engineering and associate professor of electrical and computer engineering at Ohio Northern University, was recently named to the board of directors of the Technology Student Association (TSA).
TSA is a group of middle and high school teachers and students who have either enrolled in or completed technology education courses. TSA’s membership includes more than 150,000 middle and high school students in 2,000 schools across 48 states. These members apply and integrate science, technology, engineering and mathematics concepts through co-curricular activities, competitive events and related programs.
Recently, TSA acquired the TEAMS (Tests of Engineering Aptitude, Mathematics and Science) competition from the Junior Engineering Technical Society (JETS). TEAMS is a program that challenges high school students to work collaboratively and apply their math and science knowledge in practical and creative ways to solve real engineering problems.
“I look forward to helping TSA integrate the TEAMS competition as a way to introduce engineering into the STEM – science, technology, engineering and math – focus of TSA and helping with efforts to improve STEM education in middle and high schools,” Reid said.
Reid will serve as a representative on behalf of Ohio Northern University and IEEE-USA, the U.S. arm of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers Inc.
