Research team works to improve informatics education

Decorative initial cap Tteam of UW-Madison researchers has received a $225,000 grant from the National Science Foundation to improve engineering informatics education. Associate Professor Nicola Ferrier (pictured left), Professor Vadim Shapiro (pictured center), and Assistant Professor Krishnan Suresh (pictured right) will develop software and curricula for computer science and engineering students to study biologically inspired robotic systems.

When completed, the materials will be accessible to educators and researchers nationwide via the Internet. The team will facilitate outreach and training at target institutions, where the program will foster students’ interest in engineering and computer science.
