A North Texas Teacher In-Service Program (TISP) training session will be hosted on 11 August 2017 for IEEE members, pre-university educators, and school administration officials who are interested in helping bring increased emphasis on science, technology, engineering, and math into their local schools. Emphasis this year will be on robotics topics for three distinct groups: K–5, middle school, and high school educators. TISP functions essentially as a professional development workshop aimed at helping teachers bring exciting hands-on lessons into their classrooms.

The event is sponsored by the Fort Worth Section of IEEE and is hosted by Lockheed Martin Aeronautics Company in Fort Worth, TX, USA. It is open to public, private, and home-school educators. Pre-registration is required.

Training session goals

  • 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;
  • increase the level of understanding of the needs of educators among the engineering community.
