The Stroud Center’s EnviroDIY workshop for learning about low-cost, open-source, real-time environmental monitoring systems covers the following topics:
- an introduction to Arduino-compatible hardware and software (and programming);
- using various environmental sensors (both classroom sensors and more robust outdoor appropriate sensors);
- building and weatherproofing a monitoring station for outdoor deployment; attendees will be introduced to the tools and techniques needed for field deployment (typically for stream/river monitoring, but adaptable for terrestrial and meteorological monitoring) and maintenance;
- introduction to data visualization, management, analysis, and interpretation.
Attendees will have an opportunity for hands-on experience with a variety of classroom and real-world sensors and equipment.
