AFFILIATION FEE

Any University or College that wishes to participate in any TEECA competitive events or TEECA related events at the National Conference must be officially affiliated with TEECA. Affiliation must be completed each year. To affiliate, each school must pay a $75 fee. This fee is not per student, this is per university/college. The affiliation fee does not cover conference registration for any student or faculty. This fee helps support the National Competitive Events Coordinator, and is used to provide trophies and possible scholarship money for event winners.

Competitions

Each year at the National TEECA Conference in association with the Annual Conference of the International Technology and Engineering Educators Association, TEECA affiliated schools are invited to participate in numerous competitions. The competitions allow students to test their skills and knowledge against other TEECA Chapters from around the nation. The competitions are geared toward the skills students should be learning in their university degree programs (e.g., teaching lessons, robotics, transportation, communications, educational research, problem solving, technology challenge, manufacturing, etc.) The rules for each competition are usually released around December or January each year.

Awards Process

The TEECA National Competitive Events will take place between March 11th – 13th in Baltimore, MD.  In addition to placing first, second, and third for individual competitions, there will be a traveling trophy awarded to the best overall performing team in the all-around competitive events.  Using a point system (3 points for first place, 2 points for second place, and 1 point for third place) the TEECA National Officer board will determine the overall national champions.  In the event of an overall points tie, the tie will be broken by having the school with the most first place finishes in the competitive events.  If it is till tied, the school with the most second pace fishes would win. If still tied, the team with the most third place finishes will be crowned the over national champions.  It is incredibly unlikely that there will be a tie at this point.  If after this point a tie does occur, it will be broken with a coin toss.

The school that receives first place, based on the points system, will receive a monetary award of $500 and a travelling trophy to signify their achievement.
