IEEE and the IEEE Educational Activities Board (EAB) are committed to providing quality educational resources for educators, parents, students, IEEE volunteers, and the public.

IEEE and IBM have created a website that combines information on engineering careers with interactive activities. Intended for pre-university parents, teachers, school counselors, students, and the general public, 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.

TryEngineering Together™

TryEngineering Together is a unique eMentoring program from IEEE and Cricket Media that pairs volunteers from sponsoring companies with students in grades 3–5 to explore the wonders of STEM and encourage kids to pursue STEM careers. Designed to increase the diversity of the future STEM workforce, TryEngineering Together targets under-resourced communities, providing free STEM resources and lessons to grade 3–5 classrooms. Seeking sponsors and classrooms now. The pilot launches in the US in January 2018. Learn more.

IEEE TryEngineering Summer Camps

Designed for rising grade 8–12 students, IEEE TryEngineering Summer Camps introduce students to the exciting fields of engineering and technology. Camp experiences will help students discover their interests, develop STEM skills, build confidence, and unlock their potential for future academic and career paths in engineering. During the immersive two-week overnight program, students will gain engineering foundations, learn how engineers think, and understand how a career in engineering can make a difference in the world. The program launches in the US in 2018.

Teacher In-Service Program (TISP)

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.

IEEE is a free online pre-university computing education website. IEEE offers resources to inform and engage pre-university students, their teachers, school counselors, and parents about computing and associated careers. Visitors can learn how to prepare for undergraduate computing studies and search for accredited computing degree programs around the world. They can also explore how computing careers can make a difference and meet computing professionals, students, and heroes. IEEE features a variety of lesson plans on computing topics as well as tools and opportunities to support and encourage students in computing.

IEEE is brought to you by the IEEE Computer Society and IEEE Educational Activities Board with funding from the IEEE New Initiatives Committee.

Lesson plans

IEEE has developed several lesson plans to connect students ages 8-18 with the world of engineering. These hands-on lessons reinforce key engineering concepts while building students’ critical-thinking, team-building, and problem-solving skills.

Each lesson provides learning objectives, background information, a list of inexpensive materials, step-by-step instructions, and reproducible student worksheets. All lesson plans are engineer and teacher reviewed and aligned to national education standards.
