Your answer
What special skills do you bring to the training and how does this training fit into your educational future? *
Your answer
Data from all the Vog sensor nodes on the Island will be accessible real-time. A teacher could design a study question for the class to work on together to model how to do research. (For example, teach students how to graph using real data.) Or students might pose their own research questions. Feel free to describe what you hope to gain from this workshop day. It could be a new chemistry curriculum or more info about vog, or some engineering skills as well. If you have additional interests and objectives for this workshop, please let us know. *
