Research in the fields of robotics and big data is currently of paramount importance in order to address the multitude of open challenges to achieve truly autonomous driving and the realization of smart cities. The relevance and significance of cross-disciplinary research in robotics and big data cannot be overstated in the context of STEM education and its potential is daily growing.
This site will attract K-12 teacher participants towards STEM education by providing tangible research experiences and appropriately designed knowledge modules, in turn enhancing the STEM education for their students,and further designing and deploying transferable research and education tools for the school environment.
This project aims to nurture an interest and passion for robotics and big data research to K-12 teachers of all levels, especially from the perspective of their intersection for smart cities.
