The large established robotics programs, such as First and Vex, require a level of commitment of time and money that deters most high school teachers from participating. I?m in a high school robotics league that is high level in teaching engineering design, creativity and programming, but very low in cost and time requirements. This is best described by viewing our competition videos and website.

What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
