NIST Tech fosters and supports an environment of technological literacy at NIST in an increasingly connected world.
NIST Tech has its humble origins from two inspired IB Computer Science students who wanted to share their love for technology with the NIST Community. It has since grown to include more than 15 members, who are able to select and suggest new ideas through an innovative project-based system.
Currently, the group operates two main projects: NIST Tech Certification Program, and the weekly Tech Tips Tuesday. Both are designed to further students’ technological knowledge, with the former permitting students to gain additional expertise with technology at NIST, and the latter informing on the various tips and tricks that the greater NIST community can use to interact with their computers more effectively.
NIST Tech further hopes to promote and host various technology-related activities for NIST students so as to hone their technological abilities. We believe that NIST students must have access to proper technical knowledge, learning opportunities, and, if they desire, healthy competition, in order to use technology to the fullest extent in this increasingly connected society.
Which UN Sustainable Development Goals Do We Support?
To provide a clear context for the aims of service groups at NIST, we align our projects to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). “The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), otherwise known as the Global Goals, are a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity. The SDGs work in the spirit of partnership and pragmatism to make the right choices now to improve life, in a sustainable way, for future generations.” This NIST group supports the following goals:

Funds Raised (THB)
Since its founding in 2013, 2Develop has raised over THB 550,000 to support its projects in Omgoi and Cambodia.
NIST Tech hopes to to further promote and host various technology-related events for NIST students so as to hone their technological abilities. We believe that NIST students must have access to proper technical knowledge, learning opportunities, and, if they desire, healthy competition, in order to use technology to the fullest extent. We envision a NIST where students have access to opportunities to further their technological ability through practical work and friendly competition.
95% of all funds and resources raised have been directly funneled to the beneficiary communities.
