IEEE Central Texas Section What have I learned? There are many activities and programs to encourage K-12 STEM education. Many of these programs are adequately funded. Most of the adult participants are educators. We are not a profit making organization. We are a people organization. These organizations need engineering and science mentors and volunteers. The best way for us to help is to volunteer.
IEEE Central Texas Section Problems Encountered and Solutions Problem I am overwhelmed with the number of STEM activities. We need to focus. What do we want to do as a section? Solution I would like to form a committee to focus on the K-12 activities that our section wants to be involved in as a section. Meeting will be in February. The location will depend on the response.
IEEE Central Texas Section Problem Communicating Information about K-12 Activities to section membership? Solution Add a K-12 activities page to our web-site with information about upcoming events and publishing the information in the analog.
