I agree: we need to get good science programs in all schools. Sometimes all it takes is dedicated teachers to inspire students. But we should make an effort as a society to get minority youth interested in science. It's not just about "social justice" -- it's about common sense. You never know where the next brilliant invention or discovery will come from; educating kids in science will have a positive effect on society: more in tax payers with good income.
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.
