ICS Faculty Dr. Mike Eisenberg will soon begin work on two new grants.

Along with Principal Investigator Dr. Ben Shapiro (ATLAS) and ICS Fellow Dr. Joseph Polman (School of Education), Dr. Eisenberg will develop "wearable technologies to help humans experience the world through a dog's senses and get kids involved in the process, too." Read more about the grant in the Daily Camera: Dog's-eye view: CU Boulder wants humans to experience secret life of pets.

Dr. Eisenberg will also collaborate with the Concord Consortium on a different National Science Foundation (NSF) funded grant, focusing on "Paper Mechatronics, an innovative educational technology genre that mixes creative papercrafts, mechanical design, and computational thinking." ICS graduate student Hyunjoo Oh will also contribute to the grant, expanding on the "FoldMecha" technology she developed.
