As part of the GK-12 Triple Helix program at Rensselaer fellows, Chris Shing and Louis Gutierrez, teacher Liz Franklin and graduate student Kirk Jalbert are working to make sensor technology and environmental studies a theme of the middle schools’ science curriculum.  By combining sensors for various applications they hope to be able to cover a lot of topics, ranging from measuring the temperature of a beaker to observing air pollution patterns, in an attempt to link the research world, the classroom and the community.

Kirk Jalbert’s Community Sensing Workshops solicit conversation around communal responsibility and social justice issues related to environmental monitoring.
