Introduction to SENSE IT

SENSE IT brings real world environmental sensor networks into the high school classroom. SENSE IT participating students are challenged to design, build, deploy and interpret data from their own environmental sensors.

During the initial phase of SENSE IT, over 60 high school teachers in New York State will participate in the program, receive professional development on the interdisciplinary SENSE IT education modules, implement SENSE IT in their schools, and impact over 3,000 New York State high school students. Additionally, SENSE IT aims to foster science, technology, pre-engineering and mathematics (STEM) career awareness among students, teachers, guidance counselors, administrators and parents.
