The ATE Impacts book, published every two years by Internet Scout Research Group, showcases all of the National Science Foundation's (NSF) Advanced Technological Education (ATE) centers and selected nominated projects. The NSF ATE program focuses on the education of highly-qualified science and engineering technicians for advanced technology fields. Through the program's grant process, the NSF promotes the improvement of STEM education of science and engineering technicians at the undergraduate and secondary school levels, and in the workforce.

This 2024-2025 Impacts book provides data on the NSF ATE program, a foreword by NSF Director Sethuraman Panchanathan, an introduction, and summaries of the activities and accomplishments of 24 ATE centers and 36 projects. Website addresses are included for all of the centers and projects. A map is also included that provides geographic location information that is intended to help connect educators, employers, and students with the ATE initiatives in each state.

The introduction discusses distinct aspects of the ATE program, such as its 30th anniversary, addressing emerging industry workforce needs, and reaching historically underrepresented populations. The ATE Impacts videos are also featured, which highlight ATE innovation and industry collaboration. These videos were created in collaboration with Vox Television and accompany the book. Each video shares the experiences of an ATE community members (students, administrators, educators, and industry partners) and the profound impact of ATE initiatives on their lives and careers. The videos are available to view separately.
