ScienceScope has been fortunate to receive grant funding from EXPO2020 Live to develop Internet of Things (IoT) initiatives in education in the UAE and globally.
ScienceScope has developed an IoT solution for education called, IoT@School which seeks to connect schools to a global educational community and to build partnerships between schools and business, local government and the wider public. Students can share data gathered and will increasingly be able to collaborate on investigations with students on the other side of the world. The data collected by schools can also be used in smart-city planning by businesses or government and can be used by the public to improve their understanding of their environment. This has particularly exciting potential in the area of sustainability because data can be collected on air quality and weather, which will improve people’s awareness of their impact on the environment.
Below is an interview with ScienceScope’s CEO, David Crellin. Here he explains our plans for developing these initiatives building up to EXPO2020 in Dubai.
