SAMS 1.3.1 Includes IRB. To overcome the physical challenges of being on campus, either due to pandemics, other natural disasters, family or job obligations, the PIs propose to develop hands-on assignments and projects using Internet of Things (loT) devices and sensors for students to execute in their own safe spaces off campus using physical hardware. loT devices and sensors have been selected as the hardware devices of choice since they are applicable to multiple STEM disciplines and skills. In addition, the portable loT devices with sensors represent modern technology and interfaces that are a growing trend in our daily lives. Making loT kits and sensor packages available to engineering and computer science junior- and senior-level students off campus will enable hands-on active and problem-based learning so that the students can work with the hardware off campus to achieve the learning outcomes of the targeted courses. Data will be collected and assessed . The information will be disseminated through conferences and journal papers.
