The IEEE Region 8 Student and Young Professional Congress took place from August 6th to August 10th in Krakow, Poland. On August 7 a Teacher-in-Service-Program Workshop was organized by Fabio Domingos and Ioannis Mousmoutis, Ad Hoc Members of the IEEE Region 8 Pre-University Works Sub-Committee.
At the beginning of the workshop Pre-University Activities and Teacher-in-Service-Program were presented and their benefits were discussed.
Afterwards, a hands-on workshop was delivered. The participants were divided into groups of 3-4 members and they were asked to build a tennis racquet using simple materials in 45 minutes.
All the teams presented what they build and explained what they discovered about engineering by doing this activity.
After the hands-on activity, a comparison between TISP and TISP 2.0 was made and guidance on how to organize a successful TISP workshop was demonstrated.
The participants seemed very interested and motivated and we expect them to organize TISP workshop in their local areas soon.
