The Technology Day Rally at the fair is the first of three state competitive venues where members of the Georgia Technology Student Association (TSA) meet and compete against each other with their design and technical prowess. Out of the eleven competitive events, the Peach County TSA chapter competed in three; the mousetrap vehicle, architectural renovation, and catapult design. The members worked on their products for three weeks in their Engineering Concepts class and on their free time. All of the products had to be checked for meeting specifications before they can be tested or interviewed.
Jackie Chen created his 2D and 3D rendering of a garage model and placed fourth out of 40+ entries. The judging was based on his design and his response to the interview questions.
Emanuel Flores and Khayri Henton created the mousetrap vehicle which placed 6th out of more than 40 entries. The mousetrap vehicle had to travel 21 feet at the least amount of time. This group’s design not only met the requirements but traveled the distance in 6 seconds.
