The Community Robotics, Education and Technology Empowerment Lab (CREATE Lab) explores socially meaningful innovation and deployment of robotic technologies. We specifically aim to:
Empower a technologically fluent generation through experiential learning opportunities in and outside of school. We define technology fluency as the confidence to author/creatively configure technology to pursue individual and collective goals.
Empower everyday citizens and scientists with affordable environmental sensing and documentation instruments, and powerful visualization platforms for sense-making and sharing of gathered scientific data — to promote evidence based decision-making, public discourse and action.
