The main deliverables of our research will be a cadre of students, pursuing graduate degrees, who are well versed in interdisciplinary research with a focus on the unique area of imaging science, and an ability to apply what they have learned to a host of domain applications. We are also learning how to recruit and support Native American students to scientific research careers - a population that is very underrepresented.

We are committed to the development of educational technology tools that are designed with cost and “user-tinkerability” in mind. We strive to increase the potential for technology-rich access to scientific data to be in the hands of a much larger slice of the educational community. Here we present three low cost educational technology tools developed by a diverse team including many undergraduate and high school students. We involve both undergraduate and high school students in the development of content for these systems, encouraging the growth of both scientific and technological literacy in the process.
