About IEEE TISP Week 2018

After the successful TISP Week the last two years, where more than 1250 teachers were trained in 16 IEEE Sections around IEEE Region 8, we are continuing the trend and organizing TISP Week 2018 this year.

TISP Week is a Region 8 program is focused on spreading the educational benefits on the field of engineering, while making the teachers and students to work collaboratively, by implementing interesting and innovative lesson plans.

It is a great pleasure for us to announce that this year, Region 8 and Region 10 join forces in order to organize a huge educational event spreading across the entire 4 continents, Europe, Asia, Africa and Australia.

TISP Week 2018 will be happening  the 2nd week of October. During this week, TISP Workshops will be organized around Region 8 and Region 10 by the participating Sections. Each workshop will train a minimum of 30 school teachers

All TISP Week workshops will have IEEE-trained volunteers providing training to school teachers, while implementing a lesson plan by the tryengineering.org.

About IEEE

IEEE is the world’s largest professional association dedicated to advancing technological innovation and excellence for the benefit of humanity. IEEE and its members inspire a global community through IEEE’s highly cited publications, conferences, technology standards, and professional and educational activities.

IEEE, pronounced “Eye-triple-E,” stands for the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers. The association is chartered under this name and it is the full legal name. To learn more about the association’s name, for more information please read the History of IEEE.


TISP stands for the ‘Teacher In-Service Program’ and is a professional development program aimed at helping teachers bring exciting hands-on engineering lessons into their classrooms. IEEE volunteers are trained to conduct TISP workshops. These trained volunteers – known as TISP Champions – then take the program to their local areas and train school teachers.

The aim is for the school teachers to eventually implement these lesson plans in their classrooms on a regular basis and for the local TISP champions to keep in contact with the school teachers to provide support.
