Funded by NASA and developed at Carnegie Mellon’s Robotics Institute, “Big Signal” was a web interface that let students experience Antarctica via Nomad – a robot prototype that searched for meteorites.

Coppin says that the goal of the project was to “place students in a real scientific setting by giving them access to the same data that a scientist would access.”
