Welcome to week three of our Urban Sensor Hacks series of live hangouts with Master Makers who are doing amazing things in environmental data collection using off-the-shelf and open source technology. If you’ve missed any of the live events so far, we’ve got them archived on our Youtube channel, but for your convenience, here they are in handy video slideshow format. Take a break and see what’s happened so far:
The fifth Urban Sensor Hacks live hangout will be TODAY, Tuesday October 8th, starting at 3:30pm PT/6:30pm ET (RSVP for the G+ Event here), featuring Master Makers Tim Dye, Michael Heimbinder, Iem Heng, and Raymond Yap – aka the AirCasting crew – who will guide us through the step-by-step process for building our own air quality monitor, discuss the challenges involved in achieving accurate measurements, and detail their work with grassroots groups and schools to conduct environmental monitoring and advance STEAM education.
