IEEE Pre-College Initiatives Link Engineers and Educators

  • Deans Summit – Collaborations between education and engineering deans to better prepare teachers to teach science, math and technology
  • Pre-College Educator/Engineer Resource Site (PEERS) -- To help improve the pre-college teaching of science math and technology topics
  • Pre-College Teacher In-Service Program for Sections- 420 teachers have been trained. Online kit has been proposed.
why are sections important
Why are Sections Important?
  • A Section provides a common local forum for IEEE members to meet and exchange views on technical, educational, scientific, professional or other areas of interest.
  • Section members share technical, professional and personal interests with others in IEEE's worldwide member community.
  • Sections help raise awareness and understanding of our profession in local venues.
sections provide a community of colleagues
Sections Provide a Community of Colleagues
  • Members build a network through local Section, Chapter, Student Branch activities
  • Develop new skills by taking an active role
    • Gain management, teamwork and leadership experience
  • Have opportunities to meet leaders in technical interest areas
  • Gain recognition for accomplishments and recognize the achievements of others
