Although I am not directly involved in this project, I took a sneak peek at the first group of 70 high school students attending the first week of the NSF funded project “Stormwater‘ ar Umaine targeting to broaden participation in STEM (Science, technology, engineering and mathematics) fields. More than 50% of students are women and minorities. After a theory class in the morning, with M. Musavi and A. Abedi, the students and several high school teachers investigates river water by sediment analysis and measured conductivity in various samples of water. The week will continue with knowledge about radio based wireless communication, tiny platforms, programming arduino nodes and deployment.
