ENVIRONMENTAL SENSORS: DESIGNING, BUILDING, AND DEPLOYING IN THE FIELD, BIOB 491, M-F Full Day, 3 credits
Monday, June 24, 2019, 8:00 AM to Friday, July 05, 2019, 5:00 PM EST
Category: Course

Location (Field Station):
Flathead Lake Biological Station, University of Montana, east shore of Flathead Lake, Northwest Montana, USA

Course Description:
Prerequisites Two semesters of undergraduate course work in a science, technology or engineering major; or consent of instructor. Networked, autonomous environmental sensors are increasingly being used to collect real-time data about the natural world. Understanding how to design and produce the appropriate sensor to answer specific scientific questions requires knowledge from a broad range of disciplines. The Flathead Lake Biological Station’s SensorSpace (https://sensorspace.tech/) is a cutting-edge facility that enables scientists and engineers to design and manufacture their own environmental sensor networks. This course is designed for both engineering and ecology students to work on small team projects to learn about, design, manufacture, and deploy robotic environmental sensor networks. This course will include instrumentation design, manufacturing, and wireless network communications in the field. Instructor – Dr. Cody Youngbull, FLBS-U of Montana (https://flbs.umt.edu/urls/people)
