WySTACK 2021

September 7, 2021

Wyoming Supporting Teachers and Computing Knowledge (WySTACK) was a six-week research experience for high school STEM teachers in Wyoming. In support of their projects, teachers learned programming skills, data analysis techniques, and methods to integrate computer science concepts into their teaching subjects. WySTACK participants each implemented lesson plans during the workshop that showcased the computer science-related skills they developed over the research experience. WySTACK participants will each implement lesson plans that showcase the computer science-related skills they developed over the research experience.

12 Wyoming STEM teachers worked in four groups, each led by COSC faculty members and supporting graduate assistants. Assistant Professor Dr. Lars Kothoff, led a group using machine learning to optimize 3D printing methods. Assistant Professor Dr. Diksha Shukla led a group that researched the possibility of using brain waves as an authentication mechanism. Associate Professor Dr. Amy Banic led a group that used virtual reality technology to explore whether human movement could be used to perform a CAPTCHA. Assistant Professor Dr. Mike Borowczak led a group that researched methods of retaining data in drone swarms even when portions of the swarm are lost.
