Flower Mound High School is Chapter 619 of the Technology Student Association. We also participate in the VEX and FIRST Robotics Competitions. This year, (2014-2015) our Vex team participated in the World Championships, where we placed in the top 20, beating out schools from many other countries. At the Texas TSA State Conference, our school got the award for second place high point, with one of our students earning the first place individual high point award.
Follow us on Twitter to keep up with the latest news and achievements. Stay tuned for the upcoming TSA National Conference at Gaylord Texan Resort in Grapevine, Texas.
As we participate in the Technology Student Association competition, we learn a lot of skills that are needed to live in the technical world of tomorrow. From learning the languages to develop video games to working with a team of talented individuals to achieve a goal, valuable lessons are learned that help each student advance their skills.

Our TSA Chapter participates in the official Vex challenge along with the TSA Vex competition. We split into teams and work together to design, build, and program robots. This year, we did really well. Two of our teams won first place in various locations, with one of them going on to the World Championships and placing second.

FIRST is the more advanced robotics competition we take part in. It is mainly just the most experienced students, usually juniors and seniors, that design and engineer the robot. Several help out during building and most just learn so they can participate during their junior and senior years. This year, we were on track to win regional, but we had to go home due to inclement weather. Click on the image to go to FRC's website and learn more.
