On Friday, March 1, Greg McCauley, CEO of Grand Universe, had the exciting opportunity to serve as the keynote speaker at the Technology Student Association (TSA) Indiana State Competition.

This national non-profit is an organization of middle and high school students who are passionate about Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM). Each year, the TSA holds state and national conferences where students compete with hands-on projects and experiences across a multitude of STEM-related topics.PXL 20240301 193417333

A monumental eclipse
This year’s competition theme was Embrace the Eclipse: A New Phase of Technology. As the total solar eclipse draws near, Greg McCauley had the unique opportunity to share the science behind the eclipse, the path of totality, and what to expect with those in attendance.

Don’t miss the total solar eclipse on Monday, April 8. Join Grand Universe at Grand Park for food, fun, and a great spot to see the eclipse. Preceding the total solar eclipse event, Grand Universe will officially break ground! Learn more.

A universal mission
On a national level, the TSA has had a wide impact. The organization has over 300,000 student members across 48 states and 2,300 schools. Students are encouraged to participate in competitions, intra-curricular activities, community service, and more with their membership.

Like Grand Universe, the Technology Student Association is dedicated to STEM education. They strive to help students go from learners to leaders. Among many other careers, the organization prepares students to be inventors, engineers, and problem solvers. The association in Indiana alone has helped over a thousand students in the pursuit of careers in these fields. Currently, a total of 75% of TSA student members have plans for college and 100% are set to graduate high school.

This same mindset is what we’re after at Grand Universe—to instill a desire to learn more about science and technology among all ages. Our campus will have immersive learning opportunities with hands-on activities, engaging exhibits, and interactive programs to achieve this mission.
