Machine Science is pleased to announce a summer professional
development workshop for middle school and high school teachers who
are interested in using iSENSE, the Internet System for Networked
Sensor Experimentation. The iSENSE system lets your students do
hands-on science with sensor probes and electronic data collection,
and then upload, share, and interpret their data at the project's web
site (

The three-day workshop will take place June 28, 29, and 30, on the
campus of UMass Lowell. It will provide an opportunity for an
in-depth, hands-on experience with the iSENSE technology. Teachers who
attend the workshop will be eligible to receive loans of the iSENSE
data-collection equipment, as well as in-person support for classroom
iSENSE use. Professional development points and in-service credit may
be available.

More details and a registration form can be found here:

Please note that we are happy to waive the $25 registration fee if you
send us a brief letter from your principal supporting your
participation. Also, UMass does have some funds available for hotel
stays (first come, first served) if you want to make a mini-vacation
of it -- Lowell can be quite nice in the summer!

Feel free to contact me if you have any questions. I hope to see you there!

Best regards,

Sam Christy
