Students in the Technology and Engineering Education Collegiate Association (TEECA) brought back three awards from the Midwest Regional TEECA competition at Illinois State University held October 27-28, 2017.
The Purdue team placed first in the Teaching Lesson competition, which evaluates how well an individual or pair of students plans and teaches others about a technological topic. The team placed second in the Problem Solving event, which allows the members to use their design skills, 3-D modeling abilities and creativity to solve a specific problem. The Purdue students also took first place in the Technology Quizbowl.
The students are advised by Greg Strimel, assistant professor of engineering/technology teacher education and Scott Bartholomew, assistant professor of engineering/technology teacher education. “These students worked tirelessly to compete in the regional competition and now have the awards to prove their dedication and efforts,” said Strimel.
