Engineering Biology in Cambridge


This month we're looking at sensor networks. Hear from researchers building and using sensor networks for science and get hands-on in the afternoon working on a project.

Science Makers is a monthly event to discuss and build low-cost, DIY and open hardware for science and education.

12:00 - Arrival and coffee

12:30 - Presentations and demos 

• Cecilia Mascolo on wireless sensor networks and Emotionsense 

• Helene Steiner on plants as sensor networks

• Helen Pritchard on citizensense, a practice-based research project investigating digital sensors and environmental practice.

13:30 - Pizza (£4 suggested donation)

14:30 - Making! 

We'll be building a PM2.5 air quality sensor based on Arduino with citizensense.

You are also welcome to work on your own projects.
