DMDS: Citizen Science (Part 1)

Part I – Workshop: Build an Air Quality Monitoring Rover

This hands-on workshop introduces students to low-cost air quality monitoring and data mapping. As low-cost hardware becomes readily available and continues to improve, these devices have the potential for broadened awareness and engagement, particularly for activists seeking to empower environmental justice communities. We will build an air quality monitoring rover using an Arduino, particulate (dust) sensor, a temperature and humidity sensors and an LCD display. Students will learn the basics about Arduino, assembling code, powering the mobile device and all of its components, and mounting the hardware on a creatively re-purposed remote controlled toy truck.
