CSP Student Receives a Grant From AFCEA

For a science fair project, Maya Albayrak worked on data mining geo-tagged twitter messages to map rain in real time. That project inspired her to initiate collaboration with NASA in a citizen science project which will require 15 additional CSP students. The data that they provide will be used to validate NASA’s satellite data. Maya wanted to extend the project to collecting other weather data in real time and presented her idea to the Central Maryland Armed Forces Communications and Electronics Association (AFCEA). Maya was awarded $3,349 to purchase equipment to fund a weather lab at CSP.
