Faculty and students can access the National Science Foundation's (NSF) Advanced Technological Education (ATE) program's resources that support rich interactive learning through the ATE Central website. With an emphasis on two-year colleges, the ATE program focuses on the education of technicians for the high-tech fields that drive our nation's economy. ATE involves partnerships between academic institutions and employers to promote improvement in the education of science and engineering technicians at the undergraduate and secondary school levels. ATE supports curriculum development; professional development of college faculty and secondary school teachers; career pathways to two-year colleges from secondary schools and from two-year colleges to four-year institutions; and other activities. Another goal is articulation between two-year and four-year programs for K-12 prospective teachers that focus on technological education. The program also invites proposals focusing on research to advance the knowledge base related to technician education. Credit: Photo from ATE Centers Impact 2011 (www.atecenters.org)
