San Jose Mercury News: Gift of Reading
Dear IEEE Volunteers,
We have been awarded to be a recipient of The Mercury News Gift of
Reading Program. That means we may receive around 2000
books. However, we need volunteers who can assist with sorting
the books. The books are received by San Jose Mercury and
Barnes&Nobles and other bookstores. The volunteers will sort
the books into different age levels. This books will be given out
to students at the different elementary, middle, high schools in our
area. The sorting will be done at San Jose Mercury News
headquarters which is around Brokaw Road and 880, so make sure it is
convenient for you to make it on time. There may be some lifting
of books or boxes : from 10 to 40 pounds, so make sure you don't have
any back problems. Most ladies only sort the books and the guys
carry the boxes to different stations.
So if you are interested in exercising your community involvement,now
is the time.
We need at least 5 volunteers for these avaiable time slots/dates.
You can volunteer for more than 1 time slot if you have extra time.

Here's your chance to make an impact at your local school,library or
publicity at the mall. The local chapter of National Engineer's
is supported by David Levinson firstname.lastname@example.org

17,2001 Synopsys Sponsored Silicon Valley Championships
Synopsys has generously supported the sciences by paying for both the
team's project supplies AND teachers get a small stipend
their efforts. WOW! Now that's
your money where your mouth is to support and retain our valuable
16-18,2001 Botball : High School level Lego Robotics
Terry Grant an IEEE member is supporting these efforts. Contact

4,2001 The Tech Challenge (support August Boeger Jr High)
August Boeger is a Jr High School in East San Jose that the Santa Clara
Valley has sponsored with Lego Robotics. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org
for more information.
To be kept abreast of local volunteer
the year,join the local Silicon Valley K-12 Egroups
There are many opportunities to participate and make an
impact on our
community and to ourselves as a whole.
But first one must be properly trained in how to conduct
the classroom with the school administration,teachers,and
Never, never be so proud as the know it all guy. This will turn

Now that you've better undertsood your role and how to
it's now time to figure out what to do.
Assess your own skills and see how you fit into existing programs at
the local schools and jumpstart your own special program.
Existing programs are
IEEE Power Electronics Society has donated four Lego Robotics kits to
local middle schools: August Boeger Jr High in East San Jose, Castro
School in San Jose, Suunyvale Middle School, and Kennedy Middle School
high school level
Lego Robotics that is being co-sponsored thru the KIPR Foundation.
Science Fairs : visit your local
elementary,middle,or high school
and volunteer to be a judge for the schools. They always need
judges instead of parents as judges.
Laser Optics: a separate group within IEEE Santa
has decided to form their own special aim of educating high school
in laser optics to recruit them as future engineers. Send email
Students : Of course this is for mature women engineers
be a mentor to local female engineering students.
This program is organized on a national level but is also locally
Of course, the title explains itself. It is across all
levels and is generally held in February. This year it is
18-24,2001. Local chapter is thru David Levinson email@example.com thru
Discover E of SVEC (Silicon Valley Engineering Council).
: Toys are being converted as extensions of learning technology and
them to solve problems. In KNEX's case, they are pushing Bridge
as a simple introduction to how geometric shapes affects the strength
structures. This is targeted at elementary school students.
We believe it is appropriate for 4th and 5th grade students. We have
aside a small budget for this project. Please email
if you are interested.
Santa Clara Valley K-12 Education Committee :
Come join us in
talking with fellow engineers,school teachers, administrators, and
to determine programs and volunteer to make our membership more
to the community and to ourselves. See email to firstname.lastname@example.org
