Making sens: science education networks of sensors


A small group of leaders from research, industry, and education convened in a one-day workshop at Stanford's Center for Innovations in Learning (SCIL) to brainstorm on the use of data probes, sensors, and communication technologies in the development of innovative science education curricula. This report documents the results of a morning brainstorm and afternoon group exercises developing educational scenarios for which sensor networks would be powerful in enhancing learning content and promoting engagement in middle school, high school and college science. We are grateful to all of the creative contributors for the their efforts to explore these new frontiers and encourage readers of this report to join in making the visions that excite them in this report real. We would like to thank David Sibbet, President of Grove Consultants ( for his superb rapid visualization of emerging concepts, trends, relationships and other diagrams throughout the day. These images, captured in real time during the group's work, populate the pages along with gently edited conversational contributions from the workshop's participants.
