As the need for student proficiency in technology (as one area of STEM) is increasing, so is the need for qualified technology education teachers. Technology is moving at a rapid rate and those expected to teach are also expected to adopt this technology as fast as it's developed. Participants research and prepare a video showing an application for the classroom and create a lesson plan/activity that correlates to the standards for technological literacy utilizing the application. (Use the International Technology and Engineering Educators Association ITEEA website at www.iteea.org for more information about the technology standards) Topics also should reflect Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) initiatives and integration. Lesson plans/activities that explore knowledge, creativity, and skills in the following areas are suggested:
Agricultural and biotechnology
Power and energy technology
Information and communication technology
Semifinalists communicate their design process through participation in a semifinal interview.
