The Teacher In-Service Program (TISP) enables IEEE volunteers to share their technical expertise and demonstrate the application of engineering concepts to support the teaching and learning of science, mathematics, and technology disciplines. IEEE offers training workshops for its members on how to facilitate in-service programs for local teachers to help them introduce hands-on engineering lessons to their students. These lesson plans are aligned with education standards and can easily be used in the classroom.
Educational Activities is developing the Engineering Projects in Community Service (EPICS) program in IEEE. Conceived and championed by IEEE 2007 President Leah Jamieson, EPICS is a program that organizes university and high-school students to work on engineering-related projects for local area humanitarian organizations.
IEEE and IBM have created a portal that combines information on engineering careers with interactive activities. Intended for pre-university parents, teachers, school counselors, students and the general public, TryEngineering.org lets visitors explore how to prepare for an engineering career, find accredited engineering degree programs, download lesson plans, read profiles of engineers and engineering students, search for opportunities, play interactive games, and more.
IEEE has launched TryNano.org, a resource for anyone interested in learning about Nanoscience and Nanotechnology. Nanoscience and Nanotechnology are technical fields that focus on matter at the nanoscale – dimensions that are roughly 1 to 100 nanometers (1nm = 10-9m).
At TryNano.org you can explore nanomaterials, meet nano experts, learn about organizations on the cutting edge, find universities offering educational programs in nanotechnology, and download lesson plans.
Established in 1999, the IEEE Presidents’ Scholarship recognizes a deserving student for an outstanding project that demonstrates an understanding of electrical engineering, electronics engineering, computer science, or other IEEE fields of interest.
E-Scientia is an interactive exhibit presented in a large, space-ship like structure equipped with the latest computation, electric circuit hardware, and audio-visual equipment. Students use this equipment to solve challenges posed during a simulated space flight.
