Students of ATEC’s Technology Student Association chapter captured first, second and third place honors at the recent state competition in Myrtle Beach.

Madison Locklear won first place in computer-aided mechanical design. Madison Benton and Brianna Scott won first place for their structural and engineering design in the Balsa Wood Bridge design competition. All three students qualify for the TSA national competition this June in Atlanta.

In addition, Locklear won second place in the carbon dioxide cylinder-propelled dragster design competition, which required students to design, build and race the dragster. Scott took third place in the competition.

ATEC honors pre-engineering and mechatronics instructor Jeff Gaylor is the TSA chapter advisor. The students are enrolled in his mechatronics class.

“We are very proud of these students and their accomplishments,” ATEC director Gordon Morris said. “The performance of our TSA students this year improved on last year’s competition and our program continues to grow. Mr. Gaylor has prepared them well and I know they will do well at the nationals in Atlanta.”
