NQE Skill Development Program

The purpose of the program is to provide students and advisors an opportunity to explore STEM
career opportunities and develop the skills needed in those career fields to be successful.

The program centers around each of the competitive events in the National TSA Competitive Events
Guide. The events are broken down into two challenges that focus on the process and the skills
for each competitive event.

The students will be given a little more than a month to develop a
product for each challenge. The product will be uploaded to Texas TSA, judged, scored and

Students and their Advisors will receive scores and feedback that will enable them to
develop skills in identified areas.
