The Crisis Response and Integrated Simulation Science Laboratory (CRISiSLab) Challenge 2022 was successfully launched online on 16 May 2022. This is the second CRISiSLab Challenge since last year. College students in the Wellington Region join the challenge to apply computer science to earth science by working with an advanced ground motion sensor called Raspberry Shake. This challenge has had an increased uptake with great support from teachers and much enthusiasm from the students.
There are two phases for the Challenge. Students are required to demonstrate what they will observe from the data collected out of their sensors capturing diverse activities. All involved are looking forward to see what they will come up with in a few weeks!
The CRISiSLab Challenge 2022 is funded by EQC, Resilience to Nature's Challenges (RNC) and Te Hiranga Rū QuakeCoRE as an initiative to encourage students to get interested into science and technology. The winners will have the opportunity to work as interns at CRISiSLab in the Joint Centre for Disaster Research at Massey University.
