Recently, in an on-line forum, a high school teacher asked a simple question. Here are some of the answers from working engineers, and some of the top answers:
An infographic about what electrical engineers do is available here.
The Phoenix Business Journal has compiled some statistics on the local Engineering economy.
Governor's Celebration of Innovation
Honoring a Teacher of the Year (AzTOY) has been part of the Arizona landscape for many years, and in the early 2000's the Arizona Technology Council under the leadership of Steve Zylstra, in partnership with the Arizona Commerce Authority headed by Sandra Watson, incorporated this award program into their annual technology awards showcase. The Teacher of the Year award winners represent the best of the best of Arizona educators in STEM and CTE curriculum.
What is STEM? What is CTE? What do these acronym’s stand for? What method(s) are involved in the utilization of and/or application of these concepts?
In today's educational environment, STEM and CTE are sometimes treated as separate disciplines, but underneath there are many similarities. How do we apply these “tools” to educational needs and our everyday environment?
ACESA is expanding and there are volunteer opportunities available right now! All of the three primary projects at ACESA are looking for volunteers.
If you would like to take on some of the planning and execution, or just ask questions, please contact an ACESA board member. You may have seen the ACESA show booth at many of the street fairs and STEM events around the Valley. This year we would like to expand to include the technical societies and associations that are available to our professional colleagues.

Membership in ACESA is a way for your society, association or organization to pool resources with like-minded technology groups. ACESA acts as a clearinghouse of information on technical events and award programs for excellence in science and mathematics. If any of these activities interest your organization, you will benefit by membership in ACESA.
The 1957 mission of ACESA was to support, promote and coordinate programs and activities of the engineering and scientific associations within the State of Arizona through facilitated communication and leadership support.
Although times and technology have altered the way things can be done, that mission has remained unchanged for these 60 years.
