Smart & Connected Communities

Emerging strategic partnerships among K-12 education, government, community-based organizations, higher education, and business/industry are addressing the interactions and interdependence of systems in different domains (e.g., energy, transportation, environment, public health, education) and how stakeholders can work together to tackle the next level of challenges. Smart and Connected Communities focus on improving personal quality of life, community and environmental health, social well-being, educational achievement, and/or overall economic growth and stability. 

Below are recent and upcoming events that dig deeper into understanding what Smart and Connected Communities could be, as well as ITEST projects that serve as examples of such collaborations across STEM learning communities.
