Technology Day, started in 2001 at Illinois State University, is a one-day series of STEM-based, simultaneous, hands-on competitive events, typically drawing between 300-400 middle and secondary students. All competitive events are based on the Standards for Technological Literacy and, in some cases, the Next Generation Science Standards.
There was no 2018 Technology Day held because of rennovations.
Stay tuned for 2019 Technology Day information.

Each year the competitions are different in scope, but similar to what other students in academic areas such as mathematics and science compete in. Each competition has Level 1 (6-9 grades) and Level 2 (10-12 grades) components. Each competition is based on the Standards for Technological Literacy: Content for the Study of Technology, Common Core Mathematics Standards, and the Next Generation Science Standards. Schools do not have to hold official TSA affiliation to compete at Technology Day.
