ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the technological literacy standards that were developed to act as a beacon for educators to guide them in their quest to develop a population of technically literate citizens who possess the skills, abilities, and knowledge necessary to actively and constructively participate in the democratic, technologically dependent society of the United States. According to the Nuclear Energy Institute, the United States has the most operating nuclear power plants, with 103, the second largest source of electricity in the United States, supplying about 20 percent of the nation's electricity each year.
