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.
StandardsLearn.org is your
premier online source for standards and conformity assessment education.
Easy-to-use educational tools address the full range of standards activities,
and the self-paced educational model allows you to learn at your own speed and

The ANSI Committee on Education
oversees all Institute initiatives related to standards and conformity
assessment education and outreach. The committee is working with the entire
standardization community to introduce the importance of standards to the
academic community and the public.
ANSI’s University Outreach
initiative promotes the incorporation of standards-related information into the
curriculum of colleges, universities, and high schools.
