The National Center for Engineering and Technology Education (NCETE) was funded on August 15, 2004 under the auspices of the Centers for Learning and Teaching (CLT) program in the Division of Elementary, Secondary and Informal Education. The Program Solicitation (NSF 04-501) provided the following synopsis of the program: The Centers for Learning and Teaching program focuses on the advanced preparation of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM)educators as well as the establishment of meaningful partnerships with education stakeholders, especially PhD-granting institutions, school systems, and informal education performances. Its goal is to renew and diversify the care of leaders in STEM education; to increase the number of K-16 educators capable of delivering high-quality STEM instruction and assessment; and to conduct research into STEM education issues of national import.
