  2. 2. ATE Program g• The Science and Advanced Technology Act of gy 1992 (SATA) mandated the creation of ATE, with continuing reauthorizations under the America Competes Act.• Program focuses on the education of science and engineering technicians for high-technology fields that drive the nation’s economy. • Grades 7-12, 2yr- and 4-yr institutions can be supported.• Community colleges have leadership roles on all projects. 2
  3. 3. Why Community Colleges?• 44% of the students who receive baccalaureate or masters’ degrees in a STEM field attended a community college.• Associate degree programs produce highly qualified science and engineering technicians for the high f th hi h performance workplace and f k l d improve U. S. competitiveness.• Community colleges play a large role in the preparation of future K-12 teachers.• Community colleges have very diverse student bodies and broadening participation in STEM is a major part of NSF’s mission.
