The National Center for Engineering and Technology Education (NCETE) links technology educators with engineering educators in a symbiotic alliance to build capacity for research, nurture a cadre of talented, diverse leaders in engineering and technology education and infuses engineering design and analytical skills into K-12 schools. NCETE recently received funding from National Science Foundation as one of the 17 Centers for Teaching and Learning in the country. NCETE addresses an important niche in the overall portfolio for the NSF-funded Centers for learning and teaching program as the only center addressing technology and engineering education. This powerful combination of research, graduate education, and professional development could be applied to many levels. We have chosen to focus on grades 9 to 12.
