About Us

The National Science & Technology Education Partnership (NSTEP) was originally established

in 1977 as the Electronics Industry Foundation.  The mission of this non-profit, 501 (c)(3)

organization was to harness the power, interest and good will of the electronics industry for

the advancement of science and technology education in America’s classrooms.  Our industry

recognizes this country’s declining math and science test scores and wishes to be part of the


Our programs motivate students to become excited about achievement in science and

technology because we provide the personal involvement of professionals within our industry

to team mentors through the TechXplore competition, to tutor through NSTEP Tutor and

to advise through the NSTEP Mentoring program.  This personal approach offers students

and teachers professional and personal assistance as well as a glimpse into the “real world”

of the technology industry.For more information about our programs for Schools and

Volunteers, click on the approprate link at the top.
