For the 12th year running, IEEE Ontario sections banded together to reach more than 1,000 STEM teachers gathered for their annual 3 day conference. IEEE volunteers from London, Ottawa, Peterborough and Hamilton-Niagara were joined by Toronto Section LMs and Students. We met with 110 teachers and handed out information packets and IEEE promotional items, supplied by the IEEE EAB. Since we can offer more than 130 free, classroom-proven lesson plans which use simple material, teachers are always interested. It is always rewarding to hear from teachers who are using these lessons in their classrooms, and want to engage with IEEE in K-12 activities like classroom visits and workshops.
Our goal is simple: to get students and teachers enthusiastic about engineering using hands-on lessons.
