Cyber Science

Cyber Science is an innovative, project-driven course that integrates science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) disciplines with liberal arts. Cyber Science uses a robotics platform to teach important cyber concepts and fundamentals. Throughout the course, students are engaged in a systems-level approach to problem-solving using robotics and computer science in the context of the humanities. Seamlessly integrating the different disciplines provides students with a dynamic learning environment and a unique educational experience. Through Cyber Science, students are not only able to make meaningful connects between STEM and liberal arts, they also learn how to become better cyber-citizens.
