    Scientific & Technical Visualization I
    Scientific & Technical Visualization I and II are courses for Grades 10–12 focused on the principles, concepts, and use of complex graphic and visualization tools as applied to the study of science and technology. Students use complex 2D graphics, 3D animation, editing, and image analysis tools to better understand, illustrate, explain, and present technical, mathematical, and/or scientific concepts and principles. Emphasis is placed on the use of computer-enhanced images to generate both conceptual and data-driven models, data-driven charts, and animations. Science, math, and visual design concepts are reinforced throughout each course, which should take about 36 weeks to complete.

    This curriculum was developed to help teachers offer a focused, demanding, and exciting program of study addressing the core concepts and principles of scientific visualization. Scientific visualization involves theoretical mathematics, specialized computer programming, and the development of novel solutions to help scientists visualize and comprehend science problems of the highest order. The goal for these courses is to help high school level students gain experience using a multitude of computer graphic software, develop problem-solving skills, become independent learners, and acquire the intellectual confidence required to help them be successful with their post-secondary education.

    EbD™-NASA STEM Design Challenge Units
    Designing Human Exploration: People, Education, and Technology

    Integrated into the Engineering byDesign™ (EbD™) model program are standards-based instructional units for elementary, middle, and high school that are presented in the context of space exploration. These units are available separately and can be used as stand-alone units. In some cases, the units are an integral component of an EbD™ course; in other instances, the units can serve to augment an EbD™ course or to replace an entire unit in the course. Look for the HEP offerings in the EbD™ section of this Product Guide.

    Lunar Plant Growth Chamber Design Challenges
    Developed in conjunction with NASA’s STS-118 Mission and the first Educator Astronaut in space
    Through a partnership with NASA, ITEEA/ITEA is pleased to offer the STS-118 Design Challenges. These challenges coordinate with the Space Shuttle Endeavour’s STS-118 mission that flew in August 2007 and delivered a payload to the International Space Station. The six-person crew included ITEEA member and Educator Astronaut, Barbara Morgan. Ms. Morgan and NASA are dedicated to inspiring the next generation of explorers and finding ways to connect space exploration with K–12 classrooms. The Design Challenges focus on a lunar plant growth chamber design. A second phase coordinates with the Design Challenge to offer a science experiment on the growing of seeds. Each unit consists of two tracks: Design and Build or Design and Evaluate. Details can be found at www.nasa.gov/education/plantchallenge.

    All three units: Elementary Unit: Moon Munchies
    Middle School Unit: Packing Up for the Moon
    High School Unit: Lunar Growth Chamber

    Facilities Planning Guide
    While not all technology education laboratories will look exactly the same, there are certain laboratory requirements that should be included in any technology education laboratory design. These designated areas are defined in this standards-based ITEEA Facilities Planning Guide and provide logical and specific guidelines for designing and implementing a standards-based laboratory in your local school, no matter what the size. While the primary focus of this guide is on senior high school laboratory requirements, the elements and recommendations are appropriate and relevant to any middle school-level laboratory and should be incorporated in any laboratory design. 64 pages, 2010.

    The Overlooked STEM Imperatives
    Technology and Engineering, K–12 Education

    As the STEM education movement gains momentum, our leaders cannot continue with the mentality that our society only moves forward on mathematics and science alone. Take this opportunity to gain a better nderstanding of the need for STEM education and its critical role in creating a technologically literate society. The rationale for the “T and E” has been specifically addressed in order to gain support for these subjects as part of the overall STEM effort. You are invited to explore the power and promise of a STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) education through this publication, but more importantly, to seek to understand the importance of ensuring that the “T and E” are equal partners within STEM to adequately prepare the next generation workforce as well as valued contributors to our communities and society. 59 pages, 2009.

    The Connection to the 21st Century Workforce: Technology and Engineering Education
    Building a competitive workforce for the 21st Century requires the careful alignment of K-12 and university curricula with the skill needs of business and industry. In addition to making students better problem solvers, critical thinkers, and users of technology, academic preparation must instill in them the desire to become lifelong learners, willing and able to adjust and adapt to changes in workforce skill requirements resulting from fast-changing global markets. This publication provides a snapshot of the current state of the economy and workforce, followed by the identification and requirements of knowledge and abilities needed for 21st Century occupations, an explanation of how technology and engineering education programs promote learning about technology and can be taught in exciting ways that motivate learners to pursue STEM occupations, chapters that explain the contributions of technology and engineering education, K-12, a chapter explaining how technology and engineering teacher education can prepare teachers to deliver the education that is needed by students of the 21st Century, and an overview of the benefits business and industry can expect from the recommendations made within this publication. 74 pages, 2011.
