Part II – Citizen Science Air Quality Sensing Rover Walk & Data Mapping

After we complete the rovers we will take them for a ‘walk’ to collect data at predetermined locations. We will record our observations and then map the data for comparison readings depending on the location. These ‘augmented toys-with-a-purpose’ tend to attract attention on the street, therefore, the opportunity for public dialogue and engagement becomes a likely and welcomed occurrence. Lead: Maria Michails

Note: Participants in part one of this workshop (where groups will build the rovers) should definitely plan to attend this launch, but it it also open to anyone who wants to see the rovers and learn about what they can do.
