Many of the same tools, techniques, and toys that are found in VHS are being used to push the boundaries of science through the rapid development, of new, specialized, inexpensive, and shareable scientific equipment. My partner, Dr. Jordan Hollarsmith, and I are both marine scientists who build and deploy equipment that we have built ourselves to expand our understanding of the effects of pollution on ocean ecosystems, and to explore never before researched areas of the world’s oceans (using robots!). We would love to host a workshop at VHS to present to the community our research, showcase the tools that we have built, and discuss how we believe the hackspace community has the potential to make significant contributions to science through the development of new research tools.
If there is interest, we are thinking of sometime in late April or early May for this. Any suggestions on format are welcome!
Thanks in advance all!
