Description: The OSTEM helps to run the Nebraska Robotics Expo along with other leading partners that include the UNL Computer and Electronics Engineering Department, the UNL 4H Extension Office, the Nebraska Strategic Air and Space Museum, and Nebraska NASA Space Grant, along with other collaborators. This event is held every February and attracts thousands of youth and adults in robotics activities, STEM presentations, vendor booths, and a variety of engaging STEM activities. The Expo represents a collaborative between the SPIRIT Project and the Nebraska 4-H Youth Development project, and FIRST® LEGO® League to create an outstanding robotics competition for about 1,000 of our local and greater Nebraska area youth. As you cheer on our future scientists and engineers, we encourage you to visit the CEENBoTTM Showcase, FIRST LEGO League events, sponsor booths, and museum exhibits. The CEENBoT Showcase features a custom robot developed through the SPIRIT project called the 324 CEENBoT. The CEENBoT is an “open-source” robot that has a totally new and enhanced platform featuring multiple autonomous programming options that include a TI Graphing Calculator Interface, a Graphical Programming Interface (GPI), and programming in the C language with an Application Programming Interface (API).

Description: "This project proposes a new partnership between the Nebraska Commission on Indian Affairs, which represents the four tribes of Nebraska: Omaha Tribe, Ponca Tribe, Santee Sioux Tribe, and Winnebago Tribe, as well as other Native persons living on and off tribal lands in Nebraska, and the researchers at the University of Nebraska, Omaha. The research team will conduct a pilot study involving the collection of preliminary data and secondary data analysis on the topics of murdered and/or missing Native women and children. Specifically, the proposed collaboration will include secondary analysis of quantitative data (e.g., law enforcement data [LE], data from the Nebraska’s Missing Persons Database, the Center for Missing and Exploited Children, the Children’s Bureau) as well as collection and analysis of qualitative data from key informants (e.g., tribal leaders and community members; state, local, and tribal LE; tribal and non-tribal victim service providers) to: (1) identify the scope and context of missing American Indian and Alaska Native (AI/AN) women and children in Nebraska, (2) identify the scope and context of murdered AI/AN women and children in Nebraska, (3) identify both challenges and promising practices regarding reporting and investigating missing and/or murdered Native American women and children in Nebraska, and (4) generate data-driven recommendations for developing and strengthening partnerships to increase opportunities for justice and support for Nebraska’s Native women, children, and families. In addition to delivering important, actionable information to Nebraska’s tribal communities, tribal and non-tribal LE, victim service providers, court systems, and legislators, the proposed collaboration will also provide a replicable model for other states to complete their own comparable research to improve responses for what is perceived as a significant public health problem. ""Note: This project contains a research and/or development component, as defined in applicable law,"" and complies with Part 200 Uniform Requirements - 2 CFR 200.210(a)(14). CA/NCF"

Description: UNO students will partner with Katrina Jacobberger’s class at Norris Middle School to create an Anti-Racist Reading List for Middle School youth. This list will potentially be used by OPS as a resource for the district. With our current climate, this project couldn’t come at a better time. Students will build connections with Middle School students and assist them in exploring books that will help educate and challenge students their age. This will allow students the opportunity to learn more about anti-racism and how that could look in a school setting.
