Making waves in how we research shark behavior. In an effort to track shark motion, Dr. Lowe and his colleagues have developed a shark tracking robot to monitor and track shark movements. The development of the robot requires input from a team of partners - engineers, programmers and mathematicians. Getting a diverse group of experts to share a common language starts with mathematics, the truly common language of all STEM fields. Dr. Lowe will share with the audience how the team answers scientific questions through the design and development of the robots. This promises to be an engaging and informative session.
