We've linked digital making projects in schools, and with community groups, to develop a new citizen science programme specifically focused on improving air quality.
Great to hear positive feedback from that wider audience at The Houses of Parliament about the significance and capacity for community collected data to drive healthy changes. Also encouraging to meet and have the support of local MP Fabian Hamilton to share the message about the impact of empowering groups through digital making.
We'll share the link for registration in the new year, when teams will join us to build an air quality monitoring station, collect data during an outdoor walk in the park and return to learn more about interpreting those results.
Great to be working with @MoortownLSG on some new community projects. We'll be sharing updates with a family digital making event planned for #RoundhayPark during @LeedsDigiFest.— FDNdigicreate (@FDNdigicreate) October 24, 2018
