The communication strategy for Educational Activities. A Sections Educational Outreach committee (SEOC) has been formed by EAB (Educational Activity Board) Goal is to create a dialog between regions/chapters and IEEE EAB. Each Region has a representative on this committee. –Karen Panetta represents R1
SEOC Charter Mission To identify and facilitate the educational needs of the public, the profession and IEEE members. Scope The SEOC will have the lead responsibility within EAB for building and maintaining strong working relationships with IEEE Regions, Sections and Chapters in order to work with these organizational units as partners. Functions serve as a focal point for identifying opportunities and facilitating the implementation of various activities and programs of the EAB in IEEE Regions/Sections/Chapters; and provide updates on educational products and services and to inform Regions/Sections/Chapters about educational opportunities to meet their educational needs.

Best Practices for Region 1 Educational Outreach Science Saturdays at companies Sponsored at various corporate locations and employees participate. IEEE members who are parents request events for their children's schools. Use tryengineering, trycomputing, realworldengineering exercises from IEEE. Members participate in robotic competitions as judges and team leaders.
