Students Around the Globe Inspired by IEEE REACH

Pre-university teachers in the Social Studies and STEM disciplines are being inspired by the free IEEE REACH resources that situate technology and engineering in their social and humanist contexts. During two teacher webinars—the International Technology and Engineering Educator Association’s (ITEEA) annual conference, Where Technology and Engineering Come to Life, and the United States’ National Council for History Educators’ (NCHE) conference, teachers learned about the REACH program and left equipped with lesson plans, videos and hands-on activities they could use immediately, either remotely or in the classroom.
