TeachEngineering Sponsors

Several organizations, both public and private, have sponsored the major development and maintenance of the TeachEngineering collection. These include:

NSF.gov NSDL.org NSF's National Science Digital Library (NSDL) program sponsored the development of the TeachEngineering core architecture, the initial digital library collection of K-12 learning objects, and the integration of TeachEngineering into the NSDL and the NSDL Engineering Pathway.
NSF.gov nsfgk12.org retnetwork.org A majority of the K-12 engineering curricular materials—activities, lessons and units—in TeachEngineering were originally created and classroom-tested by professors, teachers and graduate students supported by the National Science Foundation, primarily NSF GK-12 and RET grants, through higher-education institutions nationwide. See the list of founding partners and additional contributors for details.
FIPSE The Fund for the Improvement of PostSecondary Education funded the creation and classroom testing of several of the elementary-level K-12 engineering curricular units.

Many other entities contributed to the development of curricula in the TeachEngineering collection, and those specific sponsors are listed at the bottom of individual activity and lesson documents.

http://www.gatesfamilyfoundation.org/ The Gates Family Foundation funded early proof-of-concept development and systems infrastructure to promote dissemination of K-12 engineering curricula.
http://www.home.agilent.com/agilent/home.jspx?cc=US%26lc%3Deng Agilent Technologies Foundation funded a TeachEngineering Web metrics study that enabled us to assess nearly four years worth of TeachEngineering use data.

In addition to these sponsors, TeachEngineering has received great support from the following projects:

FIPSE All TeachEngineering's K-12 educational standards data are made available by JES&Co's Achievement Standards Network (ASN) project.
Tools for automatic alignment of K-12 educational standards with curricula were made available by the Center for Natural Language Processing (CNLP) at Syracuse University.
Nearly the entire TeachEngineering infrastructure was developed with and implemented on Free and Open Source Software (FOSS). We gratefully acknowledge the work of countless FOSS contributors making these tools available to us.
