Cyber-physical systems security summer camps are games and fun for young learners

Jun. 21, 2018—In this tug-of-war game there was no rope and no pulling. Groans, however, were plentiful as pairs of middle and high school campers at Vanderbilt jabbed at computer keys and space bars to push left or right a small robot car with cartoon googly eyes. One person in each pair was going to win. At...

Researchers find political leaning influences city water policies as strongly as climate

Jun. 20, 2018—A team that includes Vanderbilt engineering researchers has found urban water conservation policies are reflecting the nation’s political polarization. A new, interdisciplinary report demonstrates a city’s water ordinances can be as much related to whether it leans left or right as to whether the climate is wet or dry. Vanderbilt University environmental researchers found Los...
