Technology: IoT or Internet-of-Things for data collection and interaction within nature by students and faculty engaged in field research. 
Evidence: IoT, or Internet-of-Things, technologies popularized by home and industrial automation are also used to gather data and interact in the natural world. See how IoT enables researchers (including student and faculty) to gather data and interact in nature. From Ants, Bees, and Cows to Zucchini, IoT is used to collect data from sensors including sunlight, temperature, rainfall, monitor activity, and even control switches that deliver water, food, open gates, and otherwise affect the surroundings. 
Broader Impacts: Tapping into COTS (Commodity Off the Shelf) IoT (Internet-of-Things) devices mass produced for home and industrial automation enables educators access at lower costs than specialized equipment. Such technologies including the Arduino, Raspberry pi, and similar microcontrollers can collect data from a variety of sensors then transmit data via the internet or public airways using BlueTooth, WiFi, and even Amateur Radio frequencies. Cloud based sensor/data fusion, aggregation, analysis, and visualization enable research that can lead to practical decision making for future scientists, farmers, and even policy makers.
