Air Quality Monitoring Workshop with Citizen Q 空气监测工作坊

0 comments

 

在6月份的空气净化器工作坊上,柴火会员Rachel展示了他们的项目Citizen Q的强大功能;现场的小伙伴们立刻就问什么时候举办一次工作坊,请Rachel教大家如何DIY一个Citizen Q环境监测仪。鉴于大家的热情以及强烈的要求,我们将于8月11日下午在柴火举办一场Citizen Q工作坊。欢迎大家参加哦!

 

At the Smart Air workshop at x.factory in June, Rachel showed the powerful functions of her project Citizen Q in detecting air quality. And many people immediately asked when we'd be able to host a Citizen Q workshop for the community to learn & DIY one Citizen Q. And here it comes: we'll host a Citizen Q workshop at x.factory on August 11th afternoon! Welcome to join us!

 

如果你还不知道什么是Citizen Q的话,CitizenQ是基于开源硬件设计及测试的环境监测项目,目前已经在德国得到广泛的应用。Rachel是该项目的发起者。

 

If you do not know Citizen Q yet, Project Citizen Q is an environmental awareness project based on an Open Source Hardware design tested and widely distributed in Germany, and Rachel is the project initiator. 

 

Rachel和她们团队致力于在亚洲建立起环境监测的网络体系,为人们提供高品质而低成本的环境传感器基站。这些环境监测基站价格低廉,但是品质并不输给贵十几倍的产品。Rachel希望能够教大家动手造物的技能,了解黑盒子里的密码;而不仅仅是一个消费者。

 

Rachel and the team have been working on the Asian network extension and bringing cheap but decent environment sensor stations to the people. Ones that are not so inferior to the ones that cost ten times the price, she wants people to learn to take matters into their own hands, rather than being the user of what is posing as, let’s face it, a black box:)

 

当Rachel第一次走在德国的路上,她忍不住想:“我能闻到树木的味道!” 她后来发现,很多德国家庭都亲手制作空气质量检测仪,就像我们将在本次工作坊制作的环境监测站一样!她首先决定为自己做一个,然而,在中国似乎没有开源的AQI(空气质量监测)网络。这就是她如何将其作为发起Citizen Q项目的使命。“就算不是我,也需要有其他人做。”Rachel评论道。

 

When Rachel first walked upon the paths of Germany, she couldn’t help thinking: "I can smell the trees!” As she later on discovered, a lot of households all over Germany took the matter of monitoring air quality in their own hands and build their environment monitoring stations just like the one we’ll build in this workshop! She first decided to build one for herself. However, it didn’t seem like there was an open source AQI network in China. And that was how she took it as her mission to start up project Citizen Q. “If it isn’t me, there needs to be someone else doing this.” Rachel remarked.

 

经过几个月的研发和测试,工作坊终于出炉了!

After several months of research and development and testing, the workshops are finally coming out!

 

8月11日的工作坊我们将提供 相应的物料,对PM10、PM2.5、温度和湿度等环境数据进行监测。通过参与这个工作坊,你也将加入全球开源硬件社区,支持并参与建设开源众包的AQI网络。

The workshop on August 11th will be providing materials needed to detect PM10/2.5, temperature and humidity. By partaking in this workshop, you will be joining in the global open hardware community and supporting the construction and distribution of more units and this crowdsourced AQI monitoring network.

    SAT考试 是申请美国大学的高中生不得不过的一关。关于SAT考试的话题也一直不断,时不时的取消成绩,延迟考试时间,甚至取消考试。虽说是有些大学不强制要求学生提交SAT成绩,但是想要提升自己的竞争力,大部分 美国大学申请 的学生都需要参加考试。 College Board 推出一个新的工具:Landscape Landscape 可以理解为一个背景环境信息盘,是 College Board 大约的两年前推出“环境背景信息中心”(Environmental Context Dashboard)的改版。 改版后的工具Landscape 考虑的因素与原来逆境分数的评估因素一致。Landscape 为学生在考试中的表现提供背景信息,囊括了学生的高中教学质量,学生成绩,学生的社区环境(例如高级课程设置和犯罪率)等等因素。

    DIY A Wireless Charger Into A Book How to make your own DIY book charger First, you should buy a small wireless charger. Look for one that is  small, slim, and doesn’t raise the temperature too much  while loading. Obviously, if the temperature goes too hot, it will burn the book. 2. Next, find an old book you are willing to cut up. Make sure the cover not too thick because the thicker the cover is, the weaker the signal will be. 3. Then, you should use a pencil to mark the shape and position of the charger on the page. 4. Next, use a sharp knife to cut a hole in the book pages where the charger will go. remove the paper 5. After that, you should also cut a hole for where the cable exits the book. 6. Then, hide the wireless charger inside the book and use tape to stick it. 7. Please note that, if you are using the same wireless charger I am using, you should get a QC 3.0 adapter or it won’t charge well. 8. This small wireless charger is too small to locate, especially when it is hidden under the book, so, you should find some thing to help to locate it. 9. If your phone do not have wireless charging feature, you should buy a receiver. After you finish, you will see the art just like here. Finally, It works. you can search on amazon :   Soopus-X wireless charger 15W   for this item i am using. video:
