The magazine for career-technical and STEM educators.
The magazine for you.

techdirections helps teachers prepare students for advanced training and employment in technical and engineering careers. Our readers are teachers, department heads, and administrators in career-technical and STEM education. No other magazine covers the field like we do.

Published monthly September through May, the magazine features articles that help teachers develop critical thinking, problem-solving skills, and knowledge of technology concepts in their students. We also cover teaching trends and methods, professional development, successful programs, and special features on media, equipment, and supplies.
