Global IEEE Volunteers Needed this Summer to Provide STEM Program to Youth
Do you want to raise the awareness and understanding of technology and its impact on society to middle and high school students from around the world? The IEEE emeritbadges STEM Project is a global pre-university technology education program for boys and girls. emeritbadges has developed a program to foster the accomplishment of its vision around the Electricity Merit Badge and the Electronics Merit Badge programs. A group of volunteers is needed to implement most of the project objectives at the 2017 National Jamboree at the Summit Bechtel Reserve in Glen Jean, West Virginia from 15-29 July 2017. The jamboree will be attended by thousands of boys and girls from around the world.
YOU are needed to staff the Electricity and Electronics Merit Badge booth in the STEM Quest area at the 2017 National Jamboree. Global volunteers are also needed to participate in train-the-trainer sessions to learn how to teach the basics of electricity and electronics to boys and girls in their local communities.
Contact Ralph W. Russell II at email@example.com to volunteer to spend a week or two in the scenic West Virginia mountains adjacent to the New River Gorge National River area to teach boys and girls the basics of electricity and electronics. We also need help with the planning and prep for the event.
First Industrial and Commercial Power System European Conference (I&CPS)
The first Industrial and Commercial Power System European Conference will take place 6-9 June 2017 in Milan, Italy.
The scope of the Industrial and Commercial Power Systems Department includes all matters within the scope of IAS relating to the technology of electric power generation, transmission or distribution in industrial, commercial and institutional facilities, and within that segment of industry associated specifically with rural or agricultural applications.
The scope also includes the creation of related technical standards governing such applications. The objective of I&CPS shall be the advancement of the theory and practice of engineering as it relates to design and management of electrical power systems and comfort conditioning systems within industrial plants, commercial buildings and institutional facilities, and electrical power systems that serve primarily agricultural areas. The fields of electronics and computer science as applied to industrial and commercial power systems or to electrical comfort conditioning also fall within the objectives of I&CPS.
Topics eligible to be presented for this conference include (but are not limited to):
