Winning the global skills race has been identified as a critical recommendation in every recent report on U.S. economic competitiveness. As developing countries increasingly educate their workforce in science and technology the U.S. must keep pace with the changing nature of the competition. To maintain leadership in the global marketplace, our nation needs a technically savvy science and engineering workforce capable of translating knowledge and skills into new processes, products, and services.
The National Science Foundation’s Advanced Technological Education (ATE) program utilizes educators from two-year colleges in leadership roles to develop and implement ideas for improving the skills of technicians and the educators who teach them.
Joint Center Projects Include:
- ATE Center Impact Publication (every 2 years) www.atecenters.org
- ATE Joint Exhibits - at least 4 joint exhibits at national conferences for community colleges and career and technical education
- Research on evaluation
- HiTEC, an ATE Centers-driven conference for technician training and education
The NSF ATE Joint Exhibits
are geared to promote the
NSF ATE mission through
dissemination of information and showcasing of ATE programs, products,
expertise, and services at key regional and national conferences.
