Requires states to use implementation grants to:
(1) establish assessment tools and challenging academic content and achievement standards for engineering education,
(2) develop or obtain effective engineering education curricula,
(3) develop or improve engineering teacher training programs, and
(4) recruit qualified engineering teachers for needy schools. Authorizes states to use such grants to:
(1) facilitate distance learning and online education in engineering, and
(2) invest in after-school engineering education programs. Directs the Institute of Education Sciences to support engineering education research and an evaluation of this Act's grant programs.
