NYSCATE Project Overview

The New York State Curriculum for Advanced Technological Education Project (NYSCATE) is an Advanced Technological Education Project funded by the National Science Foundation. The three-year, $1.5M Project comprises a consortium of two-year and four-year institutions including Finger Lakes Community College, Fulton Montgomery Community College, New York City Technical College, and Hofstra University in cooperation with the New York State Education Department. The Project’s mission is to lay the groundwork for systemic reform of Advanced Technological Education (ATE) curriculum in New York State.

The Project will develop, field test, and institutionalize 14 articulated, state-sanctioned grade 9 — 14 Advanced Technological Education curriculum modules within three overarching areas of technology: Bio/Chemical Technology, Information Technology, and Physical Technology (materials and manufacturing).

NYSCATE will engage community college, university, and high school faculty; industrialists; state-level policy makers; and NSF ATE Centers of Excellence as collaborators in developing exemplary materials and in unifying secondary and post-secondary segments of the New York State ATE delivery system.

In its third year, the Project will expand the field test of its products to additional sites in New York and three other states to bring a standards-driver, academically integrative, pedagogically contemporary perspective to ATE curriculum and instruction
