New R6 Ed Initiatives; Outreach Event: from Apollo 11 To STEM Education

Wednesday, September 30th, 2015

Hello All!

As Chair of Educational Activities for IEEE Region 6, I’d like to let you know about several New Educational Initiatives that I’ve been working on in Los Angeles County and Orange County that, with your help, I’d like to spread throughout our region and to other IEEE regions:

New Educational and Public Outreach Initiatives:

  • Community Tech Cafés;
  • ToolBox Training Labs; and
  • Joint Program & Job Placement Training Centers.

The Kickoff Event for announcing these new initiatives will be held on Oct. 14th, 2015, at Los Angeles Southwest College’s new School of Career & Technical Education.  The theme is “from Apollo 11’s Laser-Ranging Experiment to STEM, CTE and Community Education.”
