This video will showcase the work being done at the NSF CREST-funded CyberShARE Center of Excellence leveraging the best practices from the NSF BPC-funded Computing Alliance of Hispanic-Serving Institutions. Our work at the Center has focused on preparing a new generation of creative STEM thinkers through projects that cross disciplines and require the ability of the students to work not only on interdisciplinary teams, but with students from different cultures and backgrounds. An exemplar is our participation in the Smart Cities Initiative that aims to be a model for interdisciplinary, international collaboration to advance the knowledge needed to transform cities into smart cities through joint research and education. The video highlights students and faculty from UTEP and the Universidad de Guadalajara using models for knowledge exchange and team building. These models have been developed by student scholars and faculty at the Center and CAHSI. Students learn how to use computing techniques and cyberinfrastructure to address challenges posed by cities across borders.
