NSF Research Experiences for Teachers (RET) on Sensors and Machine Learning

“Teachers participating in CBBG RET program”

 

The SenSIP RET program allows local, STEM-focused K-12 teachers and community college faculty to participate in cutting-edge sensor and machine learning research.   Teacher engage in curriculum development and design and implement lesson plans on project research focusing in areas of machine learning for several applications including health, sustainability and energy.

Applications for SenSIP RET Summer 2020 closed.  Applications for the SenSIP RET 2021 will open Feb 2021.

Program Overview

The RET program is hosted by the SenSIP center which is an industry-university cooperative research center (I/UCRC) sponsored by the National Science Foundation (NSF) and its industry members. SenSIP’s mission is to develop sensor and machine learning innovations for a variety of applications including health, security and sustainability. Specific applications include:

  • Machine Learning for Energy Studies and Solar Arrays
  • Signal processing and AI algorithms for Health Diagnostics
  • Machine Learning and DSP for Communications
  • Imaging and Vision Applications to Smart Cameras
  • Machine Learning for Flexible Sensors

We are seeking K-12 and community college teachers that are interested in engaging with the SenSIP Center in these areas through a program supported by NSF that provides stipends for teacher training.  The summer Research Experience for Teachers (RET) program in the SenSIP laboratories at the ASU campus will provide opportunity to teachers to directly participate in research as well as develop a related lesson plan that they will take back and incorporate into their own classroom in the coming academic year.
