Washington TSA - CTSOs are more than just another Club
Belonging to a CTSO provides benefits to students and teachers. Beyond curriculum development, and developed competitive events, students have the ability to get hands-on experience in the fields in which they may be interested in. They learn and practice "soft skills", and are better prepared to enter the workforce or higher education. Membership in a CTSO isn't just about belonging to a middle or high school "club" but about broadening their horizons, and getting a chance to see what else is out there, beyond their local community and school. Washington TSA focuses on many of the technology-based careers available today.

The Importance of Dust (Collection) in CTE Classrooms
Dust collection equipment exists in many CTE classrooms and is assumed to be adequate for the job. In fact, many CTE classrooms have either substandard Dust Collection capability or in some cases may be non-existent. Inadequate or absent dust collection creates a hazard to both Students and Teachers exposed to dust particles, many too small to be seen by the naked eye. This presentation will discuss the essentials of dust collection beginning by demystifying the technical language used by industry experts, explaining what the danger of exposure may be, and progressing to simple best practices that will enhance the air quality in the classroom.
