Students for Edinburgh Smart City

International Edu News

School students are being involved to creatively use new technologies to tackle local issues in Edinburgh. They will develop new ways of monitoring air-quality in playgrounds, improve the use of digital technology in classrooms or examine digital methods for managing traffic flow across the city.  The objective is to understand how primary and secondary school groups visualise the use Internet of Things (IoT) to transform Edinburgh into a smart city. It should incorporate information and communication technologies into its everyday life and business. The initiative is a collaboration between CityFibre – the UK’s leading alternative provider of wholesale full fibre network infrastructure, the City of Edinburgh Council, and the University of Edinburgh’s Data Education in Schools programme – part of the Edinburgh and South East Scotland City Region Deal. CityFibre will provide schools in Edinburgh with IoT technology kits over the next 12 months. This will enable pupils to practice solving challenges using sensors and data analysis, with some of the data collected travelling over the CityFibre network.
