This year’s program brings together faculty in mathematics, chemistry, and human-computer interaction to create a unique educational experience underpinned by the theme of transportation. Students will get to simulate traffic and design optimal solutions for busy intersections, explore ideas for using smart devices to create connected cities or explore how ants or birds organize their traffic. In addition to STEM content, the students will experience Boise State campus through daily lunch&learn meetings with researchers and participate in outdoor enrichment activities.
