Literacy Outreach Project

In 1998, the East Bay Chapter of the Society for Technical Communication launched a community-service project to introduce northern California K-12 students to basic technical writing techniques. The project developed opportunistically, from local classroom visits to sharing teacher resources online worldwide and professional development workshops hosted by Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory at the Edward Teller Education Center.

The Technical Literacy Project.

For more information on the LLNL program, see their website.
