STEM Pro Live with Intel

(View Complete Item Description)

Our world is rapidly changing because of the internet. Professionals at Intel call the special technology we use everyday the Internet of Things (IoT). These things include many things you probably see everyday like an Amazon Alexa and Google Home, your video doorbell, robots, etc. They all have sensors or special technology in them that make them smart so they can take actions when we ask them to – like you can ask Alexa to turn on the lights or tell you a joke and it will do so. In January we are excited to learn from Intel professionals as they explain how the Internet of Things is improving our lives and share details about what they do.

WHAT WOULD YOU DESIGN TO CREATE A HEALTHIER WORLD? Covid-19 continues to affect every aspect of daily life for people around the world—from going to school and work to spending time with friends and family and in our communities. In a time of crisis from public health emergencies and inequity, creativity and innovation become necessities. This is where designers (and you!) step in. Designers today are responding to the pandemic, especially as it disproportionately affects marginalized communities, and reimagining the life of tomorrow by rethinking our products, environments, services, and systems. So many aspects of our world are being redesigned—including personal space, public transportation, protective gear, home- and community-based health care, ventilation in buildings, assisted breathing devices, public health communication, and more. The 2021 National High School Design Competition challenges high school students around the country to design a healthier world for all. Be ambitious, innovative, and bold! Create a sketch of your idea and describe how your design addresses the challenge. Review how to enter and use these resources to start thinking like a designer!
