Citizen Science

If you would like to learn more about smart city technologies for autonomous measurement of environmental data, this is the right open lab evening for you. In this workshop, we will introduce you to the Citizen Science Toolkit senseBox, the senseBox Bike and the online world map openSenseMap.


Together we will collect data, interpret it and discuss the importance of "open data" for political participation and social development. With the help of the programming language JavaScript, live data from an environmental phenomenon at a specific location will be visualized from the openSenseMap. In this way, we will explore and visualize the meaning behind the abstract numerical values.

WHAT WILL YOU LEARN?

-> Basic understanding of sensor technology and environmental data

-> Importance of citizen science and open data

-> Understanding and working with openSenseMap data

-> Basic knowledge of Javascript programming

-> Understanding and using data visualization

WHAT IS AN OPEN LAB EVENING?

The lab gets creative every Thursday. You can get to know methods such as design thinking or future storytelling, try out 3D printers and laser cutters and take a look behind the scenes of the lab projects. There's something new every week.
