WeRobotics’ Andrew Schroeder has created content for the upcoming edX course entitled “A Resilient Future: Science and Technology for Disaster Risk Reduction”. This course, created by the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne (EPFL), will be free and open for all to to enroll and begins on November 5th.
“This course aims to introduce participants to existing and emerging technologies suitable for disaster risk reduction while promoting the overall aim of sustainable development. The course focuses on three main natural hazards- floods, landslides and earthquakes. It also discusses the challenges and limits of adapting and adopting technologies depending on context (Global North and Global South).”
Andrew’s material will appear in Chapter 5: “Science and Technology for Disaster Response and Emergency Relief”, and will feature WeRobotics as well as UAViators. You can enroll and find more information on the course website.
