Glen's research projects

Outreach, Blue Marble Security

This project will raise awareness for Michigan Tech's Electrical and Computer Engineering department. Target groups are middle/high school students and women; the latter of which is under-represented in Engineering in general. Raising awareness increases the number of potential students and will help to diminish the gender gap in STEM fields, both at Michigan Tech and in the overall engineering industry.
