P.S. - Be sure to join ITEEA for its 82nd Annual Conference in Baltimore, March 11-14, 2020. The theme for ITEEA's 82nd Annual Conference is: "Technological and Engineering Literacy for All!"

Providing access and equity for all PreK-12 students to become technologically and engineering literate through high-quality STEM instruction is imperative. Students who study technology and engineering through an integrative STEM education approach learn about the technological world that inventors, engineers, and other innovators have created. The goal is to produce students with a more conceptual understanding of technology and engineering and its place in society. These students must conceptualize and evaluate new technologies that they may have never seen. By “doing and making,” students become “makers” for the future.
