2ND ANNUAL EMERGING TECHNOLOGY & ENERGY SUMMIT
This free 2 full-day summer program challenges students to build an IOT-enhanced network to research Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) within and around the classroom, buildings and structures. From the sensor head, to the mobile device, to the smart lamp head, the ET Summit provides students with an intelligent IOT processing platform and dashboard that combines information from robot-mounted or unattended IOT sensors, live streaming video, and autonomous information services that makes the IAQ datasets actionable. To that end, students will gain valuable insights on identifying, understanding and controlling common pollutants indoors to help reduce the risk of indoor health concerns.

HOW IT WORKS
Students will collect, record, and upload data such as temperature, carbon dioxide and relative humidity in their classroom into a national dataset using indoor air quality monitors, sensors, microcontrollers, circuits and other real-world tools of scientists and engineers. Also, students will monitor environmental conditions on the ISS in realtime and access the ISS dataset allowing students to compare their classroom data with information from the ISS and from other participating classrooms around the world.
BENEFITS TO SCHOOLS
Access to cutting-edge science and design education
Access to subject matter experts
Media exposure for your school’s innovative courses and talented students.
Exposure to potential partners in education
BENEFITS TO STUDENTS
An opportunity to meet other students from across the world
Inspiring an interest in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) subjects and in STEM careers among middle school and high school students.
Providing an educational opportunity for students, teachers, and the general public to learn about IOT, wireless technology and telecommunications
Realize the value created by collecting, communicating, coordinating, and leveraging the data from connected devices
Once-in-a-lifetime chance to speak with an astronaut orbiting earth in the International Space Station!
The Internet of Things extends internet connectivity beyond traditional devices like personal computers and laptop computers, smart phones and tablets to devices and everyday things that make use of embedded technology to communicate and interact with the external environment via the Internet. The convergence of sensors, mobile technologies, and cloud computing provides intelligent capabilities which improves the quality of life for society by leveraging technology to respond, in real-time, to a dynamic environment. Recent estimates have shown that on average, 328 million devices are connected to the internet each month and by 2020, there will be 50 billion connected devices. IOT gives us access to the data from millions of devices. But how does it work? And what can we do with all that data?
DIVERSITY, EQUITY AND INCLUSION
The ETE Summit is intended to provide an advanced STEM opportunity to public middle-school students lacking access to high quality STEM education experiences. Students from demographic groups underrepresented in STEM disciplines and careers, including women, students of color and those from low– income backgrounds are strongly encouraged to participate.
The Emerging Technology & Energy Summit Program (“ETE Summit”) literally goes “out of this world” to offer middle school students’ a once-ina-lifetime opportunity to learn 21st century skills and tools alongside other students from around the world and with a NASA astronaut orbiting the planet earth.

Students from demographic groups underrepresented in STEM disciplines and careers, including women, students of color and those from low– income backgrounds are strongly encouraged to participate.
The ETE Summit will focus on the Internet of Things (IOT) its scope, underlying principles, and the architecture of its networks, wireless communications, devices, programming, data, and security. Every day, we use IOT to access data from the millions of devices connected to networks. But how does it work? And what can we do with all that data?
Students will have the once-in-a-lifetime chance to discuss IAQ during a live interview with a US astronaut traveling at 17,000 miles/hr. while orbiting the earth in the International Space Station.
