Community Apps for Spring and Summer 2014

Posted by shankar March - 21 - 2014 - Friday

We have started working with major local non-profit agencies to develop applications for community use. During Spring 2014, we will collaborate with the Museum of Discovery and Science (MODS), Ft. Lauderdale, FL, to develop apps for their exhibits. The eventual goal is to  help with a visitor’s experience in the museum and outside of the museum. Seven Apps are planned for the spring semester. This will be a collaboration between computer engineering and digital arts students, enrolled in the courses taught by Dr. Shankar (engineering) and Prof. McAfee (digital arts) respectively.  A computer science graduate student, Luis Rodriguez, will expand the work this summer and build a top-down template, using autocode generation techniques of Eclipse’s EMF (Eclipse Modeling Framework), to make thematic floor plans come alive.  During summer ’14, rising 11th and 12th grade students, enrolled in our ESP (engineering scholars program), will work in teams of 3 to further develop these MODS Apps. Some of the student groups will also work on Apps for FAU’s Registrar’s office and the Children’s Services Council (CSC) of Broward. Both these latter initiatives are just starting. All the three initiatives will continue in the fall semester and beyond. If you are interested in participating with these or other activities, feel free to contact Dr. Shankar at shankar@fau.edu.
