Event: Teacher In-Service Program Training for Engineers

Location: Museum of Science Boston, Skyline Room

Dates: Friday 24 March 2006 4:30pm - 8:30pm
           (dinner will be served from 6:30pm - 8:30pm on 24 March)

As an engineer, are you interested in working with your local pre-university schools, school districts or teachers? Do you want to help improve the level of technological literacy of students in your community? Then you should attend IEEE's upcoming training session on the Teacher In-Service Program. The overall goals of this event are to:

  • Empower Section “champions” to develop collaborations with their local pre-university community to promote applied inquiry-based learning
  • Enhance the level of technological literacy of pre-university educators
  • Encourage pre-university students to pursue technical careers, including engineering
  • Increase the general level of technological literacy of pre-university students for many years.

The event is free for all IEEE members. There will be a $75 fee for all non-IEEE members. IEEE will reimburse members for any training-related travel costs incurred. The event will begin on Friday 24 March with a 2 hour presentation followed by dinner at 6:30pm. On Saturday 25 Mach the event will run from 9:00am to 3:00pm and will include hands-on presentations, a question and answer period, and discussion on numerous topics, such as: program background and scope, getting started, potential costs to sections and educators, suggestions on making contact with your local pre-university community, and the alignment of an activity with education standards. Breakfast and Lunch will be provided for attendees.

We are pleased to announce that the Institute is partnering with PowerUP! for this event. Power UP! is a National Science Foundation funded project associated with the Museum of Science Boston focused on the development of a systemic model for high school, community college, and industry collaboration that will support new technology/engineering programs and pathways for students.
