Hello all,

Next month we are putting on a workshop to build air quality sensors kit.

Air pollution affects many people’s daily lives not just close to
industrial centres. Most governmental monitoring is only done with a
very limited number of sensors. Often times we are relying on
modelling to make the best guess at current levels. This can miss out
on local pollution sources or seasonally (coal fires during the
winter) / event-based pollution. This kit uses customer grade hardware
to measure levels of PM2.5. It is not a replacement for accurate
calibrated professional equipment that can pinpoint the type of
particles in the air but can give reasonable readings at a low lost in
a local area.

This kit allows you to measure local pollution levels by building your
own particulate matter sensor system. This DIY setup allowed everyone
to measure air quality. Join thousands around the world by
contributing the data to citizen science projects with open data. The
system uses off the shelf parts with limited soldering required
(design by OK Lab Stuttgart as part of the https://luftdaten.info/
project).

The workshop will take place on Saturday the 29th of February at 11 am
at a cost of €50 plus Eventbrite fees. For more information check out
