Students at South River high school are working on a PANOPTES unit. The unit was started as a senior capstone project in the Project Lead The Way Engineering Design Development class during the 2019-2020 school year. The project was then passed on to a junior class called Community Challenge during the current 2020-2021 school year.
The completion of the project will now broaden to a school-wide grades 9-12 club. This will include finalizing the build, testing the unit, and finally, become citizen scientist!
My background is Technology and Engineering Education from California University of Pennsylvania and Integrative STEM Education from Virginia Tech.
I look forward to continuing the mentor process as high school students get to dive in to real science! Below are some pictures to date of the pier fabrication, camera box fabrication, control box fabrication, and camera box assembly. I will update with more pictures of the camera and power board assembly soon.
