    1414The rapid evolution of technology requires major transformation in the educational system. ''All students'' should have quality access  to science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) pre-college coursework in order to bridge the digital and equity divide.

    16 To address this challenge, we developed a teacher professional development (PD) program and a toolkit consisting of a hardware and software system to engage STEM teachers in learning about wireless  technology  through  various  hands-on  activities  and  collaborative  research.  Through  the  PD  program and  the  development of the ‘[https://cosmos-lab.org/cosmos-toolkit/ (COSMOS Education Toolkit)]’,  the COSMOS research testbed  is  transformed  into  an  innovative  learning  platform  for  K--12 urban students that would provide significant educational benefits for the  local  community.

    1818The hardware setup of the 'COSMOS Education Toolkit' is inspired by the testbed's nodes. It consists of various off-the-shelf components, which, in  combination with dedicated software, allows the teachers to execute a vast number of real-world experiments. The  software  system  has  been  designed  around  a  web-based  graphical interface enhanced with an  easy to use philosophy on the execution and management of the  lab activities. The students access the graphical interface to navigate and select a lesson, execute the lab activity,  and  collect  the  measurements  with a similar philosophy as the COSMOS testbed.
