Projects that Dale has supported

Automated Cellular Beach Safety Flag System

Safety flags are used to indicate the current status of the water on that particular coast. The flag indicators alert beach-goers on what water conditions to expect. The flags are changed manually by personnel. Our solution is to use data from the National Weather Service and automatically change the flags as the weather changes. -Photo Credit to the Minnesota Sea Grant

CS4All: Bringing Computer Science to K-12 Students

Computer Science is essential for every 21st century student, yet K-12 teachers have little support for getting up to speed in this field. Our program brings the teaching expertise of Michigan Tech's Computer Science Department to students in the Copper Country, and it nurtures a community of teachers helping one another bring coding experience to their classrooms.
