Abstract:

Sensors are revolutionizing the way that we study, explore, and utilize our oceans. The continued development, operation, and expansion of sensors and sensor networks will require a workforce well prepared in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) skills. Solid preparations in STEM skills are critical to the marine workforce and to other sectors of the economy. National reports and international test scores indicate that these skills are currently lagging in U.S. students, which presents a challenge to the technical workplace. Using sensors and the data produced as an engaging mechanism to teach STEM skills is one way to meet this challenge. Students armed with STEM skills and the motivation to apply those skills in careers that involve sensor development, operations, and data analysis will provide lasting benefits to society and the global economy.
