The Teacher In-Service Program (TIPS) is one corporate social responsibility service of IEEE Educational Activities Board, to facilitate training workshops to enable its IEEE volunteers to share their technical expertise and demonstrate the applications of engineering concept to support the teaching and learning of science, mathematics, and technology disciplines. Its lesson plan intends to help local teachers to introduce hands-on engineering lesson to their student. All lesson plans are engineer and teacher reviewed and aligned to national education standard.

  • Promote applied inquiry-based learning
  • Encourage school students to pursue careers in engineering
  • Enhance the level of technical literacy of school educators
