What is GoSense?
GoSense introduces students and educators to sensors, big data, computer science, environmental sensing, and various fields of engineering through a series of sensor kits designed for use in real-world projects.
Sense your Surroundings
The GoSense project offers flexible STEM programming to support educators and students. Through a series of environmental sensor kits designed for use in real-world projects, students learn about their local environments through hands-on inquiry, data collection, and analysis.
Developed for use in marine, air, and land environments, GoSense kits will be enhanced by educational and program support resources, a virtual community, and a citizen science framework for use in pilot programs in communities across the United States.
Change the World
GoSense provides students ranging from middle school through undergraduate studies with real-world applications and experiences to frame their classroom learning. Through inquiry- and project-based learning models, a citizen science framework provides communities with the flexibility to start a new program or incorporate GoSense into existing programs or classroom models. The modularity inherent in this project is one of its greatest strengths, supporting adaptation for at-home, distance learning, and hybrid educational settings, as well as traditional in-person classrooms or clubs.
