Standards Learning Resources for K-12 Students

The first step in getting our future standardization leaders involved in standards development activities is educating them about the importance of standards – from a young age.

The following resources are based on materials created for ANSI’s exhibit at the 2014 USA Science Engineering Festival in Washington, DC. The documents are available for free download to help spread the word to students and educators about the critical role of standards in their everyday lives.

ANSI is showing America’s future engineers how standards are all around them, helping everything work together – and work better!

Look around you: everywhere you turn – at home, school, in the city or the country, and everywhere in between – thousands of STANDARDS are there helping everything work! From cell phones to building codes to aerospace and environmental technologies, all innovation is shaped and guided by standards. They're developed by thousands of engineers and experts around the world to ensure the products, processes, and systems we rely on every day are safe, reliable, and efficient and work effectively together.
