VCSU is committed to changing the entire approach to Technology Education.
New Attitudes create new opportunities. Non-traditional careers are defined as those in which fewer than 25 percent of the workforce are women. In Technology Education, fewer than 6 percent of teachers nationwide are women. Women who choose a career in Technology Education not only have the opportunity to become a role model, but also have the opportunity to introduce dozens of other non-traditional careers to young women in their classes. Careers in engineering, architecture, engineering technology, and design are introduced nowhere else in the K-12 curriculum. VCSU has taken steps to remove both perceived and real barriers to this exciting new career choice.
Preparing technology teachers today to develop technologically literate adults tomorrow.
