Develop challenging activities for pre-university students

Form collaborative relationships with School Boards

Objectives of TISP


World’s largest professional association, advancing innovation and technological excellence for the benefit of humanity.

What is IEEE?

Ieee around the world
IEEE Around the World

385,000 members (80,000 students)

160 countries worldwide


Ieee quick facts
IEEE Quick Facts

1,800 chapters

unite local members with similar technical interests.

1,750 student branches

at colleges and universities in 80 countries.

38 societies and 7 technical councils

representing a wide range of technical interests.

144 transactions, journals and magazines.

900 conferences

sponsored annually.

1,300 standards and projects

under development.

  • Volunteerism is a core value of IEEE


  • Developed Countries:

    • Flat or declining STEM enrollments (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics)

  • Developing Countries:

    Insufficient number of engineers and engineering educational programs

  • Women & Minority:

    Still under-represented

  • Public Perception of Engineers:

    Largely misinformed

The Teacher In-Service Program (TISP)


  • IEEE Section engineers develop and present technology-oriented projects to local pre-university educators

  • Started at the Florida West Coast Section in 2001 

  • Lesson plans started in English and Spanish for teachers and engineers. Now available in English, Spanish, Portuguese, Chinese, French, Russian, German and Japanese

  • Lesson plans matched to educational standards

TISP Metrics to Date

  • 50+ presentations

  • 675+ pre-university educators have participated (science, technology, mathematics)

  • 70,000+ students represented by educators

  • South Africa, Peru, Canada and China included

  • Over 90% of the respondents agreed:

    • They would use the concepts presented in their instruction

    • Doing so would enhance the level of technological literacy of their students

Tisp workshop objectives
TISP Workshop Objectives

To promote awareness of:

Technological literacy

The connections between STEM standards

To provide:

Hands-on demonstration of STEM topics for classroom use
