A deep dive collaborative discussion to understand learning and education examples from an in-progress, innovative, faculty-guided, student-driven, crowdsourced, big data, cloud computing, internet of things (IoT), and internet of everything (IoE), “Citizen Science” engineering project for solar forecasting and cloud climate science.

Session Description
The session offers attendees an opportunity to explore the progress of a real university “Citizen Science” project that promotes technology advancement and learning, together. Session participants share information and brainstorm about how to use the techniques and learning from this student-driven project in interesting and reusable ways. University project team members plan to be available to participate in the session discussion. The session leader is a citizen project participant available to discuss her experience in the project.
