Co-sponsored by: Dr. Ebonee Walker
Teacher In-Service Program (TISP)
NASA supports promoting STEM outreach to strengthen the educational advancement of students and encourages their pursuit of future careers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics. The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) also shares this mission, and seeks to support it by hosting the IEEE Teacher In-Service Program (TISP).
TISP is a professional development workshop aimed at helping K-12 teachers bring exciting hands-on engineering lessons into their classrooms. IEEE volunteers collaborate with K-12 schools in their local communities to deliver the hands-on program. The program’s goals are to empower engineers to collaborate with their local community; promote applied inquiry-based learning; enhance the level of technical literacy of pre-university educators; and encourage pre-university students to pursue technical careers, including engineering.
IEEE members are asked to volunteer to interact with the teachers to illustrate the different STEM careers and foster networks between teachers and engineers. Volunteers can either participate in one session or both sessions.
