Resources That Raise Engineering Awareness Through the Conduit of History

Understanding that technology and history are not mutually exclusive subjects, IEEE REACH provides history teachers with free educational resources that situate science, technology, and engineering in their social and humanistic contexts. The resources include Inquiry Units based on the National Council for the Social Studies “C3 Framework,” as well as primary and secondary sources, hands-on activities, multimedia sources (video and audio), and background information for teachers. The resources may be searched by context (for example, Inquiry Unit or Primary Source) or by nine themes: agriculture, manufacturing, materials & structures, energy, communication, transportation, information processing, medicine & healthcare, and warfare. A search may be broken down even further by era, geography, and World History AP themes. REACH was created by the IEEE History Center, a unit of the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE), with the mission to preserve, research, and promote the history of information and electrical technologies.

Plus: The IEEE History Center maintains the Engineering & Technology History Wiki, which includes oral history interviews, self-written firsthand accounts, encyclopedic articles, and a list of landmarks of engineering history searchable by a timeline and an interactive map.
