Abstract Engineering STEM: Using IoT and Energy Management to Build Interest in Engineering at the Secondary Education Level
For the past two summers, faculty in the XXXX Department at YYYY University have been funded by NSF to develop and deliver STEM workshops to educators at the secondary level. The focus of these workshops has been in integrating four important engineering topics: engineering design principles, additive manufacturing processes, energy management and Internet of Things (IoT). This work, together with the partnerships that have been developed between the Colleges of Engineering, Education and Science, have resulted in a unique capstone design project. The project includes students in the ZZZ and the WWW programs in the College of Engineering paired with students in the College of Education and the College of Science. Based on the identified need for both resources and curriculum, the project team is engaged in the design and development of a one-quarter scale, four room “house” that is fully instrumented to be monitored and controlled remotely as a IoT system. As this resource is being designed and constructed by ZZZ and WWW capstone team members, students in Education and Science are developing curriculum modules that can be readily integrated into current math, science, and engineering courses at the secondary level. The IoT house is expected to be centrally located at YYYY or other accessible locations and used remotely via the Internet by multiple groups of 8-12 grade students. The project is scheduled to be completed by December 2018 with curriculum to be field tested in the Spring 2019 semester. This paper will provide introductory and background information on the genesis of the project, the establishment of the interdisciplinary team, an overview of the IoT house, a demonstration of its operation, and conclusions and next steps for the expanded use and further curriculum development at the secondary level.
