The Semiconductor Industry Association
The Semiconductor Industry Association (SIA) represents U.S.-based semiconductor manufacturers. Semiconductors are the enabling technology behind computers, cell phones, DVD players, and the many other products that are transforming how we work, think and play. For the past five years, semiconductors have been America’s leading export.
The SIA seeks to maintain U.S. semiconductor industry leadership in markets, investment, technology, and environment/safety/health. The association opposes unfair trade practices, supports eliminating semiconductor tariffs, and fights for open markets for American semiconductor products in all markets. In the U.S., the SIA fosters a domestic economic climate that enhances the competitiveness of U.S. companies in this highly capital and research-intensive industry.
Since 1998, the SIA’s Semiconductor Workforce Strategy Committee has focused on talent as a key element to maintaining the industry’s leadership position, and has assisted the industry in meeting its workforce needs.

An Update on the Semiconductor Industry’s

Commitment to K-12 Education

Preface
Semiconductor technology advances create a constant demand for skilled engineering and technical talent, talent that begins with cultivating K-12 science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education.
Traditional industry business cycles and the current economic climate have combined to create one of the most challenging periods in semiconductor industry history. In spite of the challenges, there is -- and will continue to be for many years -- a significant need for well-trained technology workers.
To substantially increase the numbers of math- and science-focused students (our next generation of technology workers), there must be strong support from teachers, parents, mentors and corporate, government and association partners. This effort needs to take place long before students reach high school, and continue throughout their studies.
SIA member companies are working intensely to improve student achievement in grades K-12. The overall contribution levels of our member companies are outstanding.
In the past 3 years:

  • the combined spending by member companies on K-12 programs is over $220 Million

  • more than 300,000 teachers have been trained or received support through member sponsored programs

  • over 10 Million students have been reached by the programs these companies support

The publication is divided into five sections. The charts in the first two sections reflect the variety of programs supported by member companies in Engineering and Technology, Science, Math/Science and Education Infrastructure. The first section highlights programs that benefit students, while the second concentrates on programs aimed at supporting teachers and schools.


Subsequent sections include brief overviews of individual company strategies and foundation goals, detailed descriptions of the various programs in alphabetical order, as well as web resources and a geographic listing of the cited member companies.
The catalog is designed to show the focus being placed on STEM areas of education by our member companies. We hope to see, over the next several years, an increase in the number of programs that address the need for additional math and science teachers at the middle and high school level. Our other focus is programs that focus on motivating and retaining University students in Electrical Engineering. The catalog is also intended for others who share a vision of providing superior math and science education for America's students, and continued U.S. technological leadership.
Since this catalog seeks to share best practices, it does not attempt to list every K-12 program supported by semiconductor companies. It does, however, demonstrate the industry's wide-reaching impact on math and science education, and its deep commitment to developing future generations of technology talent.
