The IEEE is bringing together engineers and educators to promote the advancement of technological literacy in the primary and secondary schools worldwide. The Technological Literacy Counts Workshop (Oct. 9-10, 1998, Baltimore, Md.) will be attended by approximately 75 educators and 75 engineers. Attendance will be limited to insure the workshop is truly a "working" meeting of change agents.
The Education 21 Workshop will include panel sessions and breakouts designed to open communications lines between the education and engineering communities. Workshop attendees will consist of a balance of science, math and technology educators, as well as engineering professionals, who will identify the issues related to the design of appropriate methods enhancing the quality of technological literacy in pre-college education.
IEEE is the world's largest technical society, and is committed to taking a leadership role in influencing enhanced pre-college education worldwide.
