Our mission is to diversify the practitioners of science by providing programs to encourage under-represented minority students in middle school, high school, and college, to pursue careers in science, technology, engineering and math. In addition, we mentor and nurture young technical professionals to help them develop the skill to innovate solutions for today’s technical problems.
In order to be prepared for the employment opportunities of the future it is essential that the workforce be trained in all aspects of the newest applications of engineering, math, science and technology.
The conference will consist of technically oriented sessions and informative displays promoting STEM education and career pathways. There will be panel presentation of papers by professionals and students. Presentation will center on the theme for this conference: Preparing the Next Gener-ation of Technical Leaders for the New Global Economy.
Discussions based on the theme will expound on the ideas and method available to the NTA to broaden participation in STEM and assist in training the technical workforce for the global economy.
We invite all individuals and organizations to participate. The event kicks off on Wednesday with the NTA Board Meeting followed by two days of professional and career development
