ABSTRACT
The article presents information on International Technology Education Association's document "Standards for Technological Literacy" (STL). This document is generally thought of as a tool for K-12 schooling that identifies what students should know and be able to do in order to achieve technological literacy. However, the standards in STL are moving into another, broader venue, one that will potentially reach youth and adults of all ages. This article describes how the Boston Museum of Science has assumed the leadership in informal education's museum arena to implement STL and advance the cause of technological literacy among America's citizenry.
