The “Innovative Technology Experiences for Students and Teachers” (ITEST) program was established by the National Science Foundation in direct response to the concern about shortages of information technology workers in the United States. The ITEST program funds projects that provide opportunities for both school-age children and teachers to build the skills and knowledge needed to advance their study and to function and contribute in a technologically rich society. The ITEST program also funds a National Learning Resource Center to support, synthesize and disseminate the learning from the program to a wider audience.
In its first five years, the ITEST program -- including more than 100 projects across 37 states in rural, suburban and urban locations -- has impacted more than 130,000 grade 6-12 students, 4,300 teachers, and 1,700 parents and caregivers through a $115 million federal investment.
