The Advanced Technology Environmental and Energy Center (ATEEC), a National Science Foundation (NSF) Advanced Technological Education (ATE) center, advances environmental and energy technology education through curriculum, professional and program development and fosters a network of educational communities, supported through public and private partnerships, that ensures human health, safety and global sustainability. ATEEC runs the electronic Environmental and Energy Resources Library (eERL), an online collection of environmental and energy sustainability resources for community college educators and their students. About NSF's ATE Program With an emphasis on two-year colleges, NSF's 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.
