Don’t knock the weather; nine-tenths of the people couldn’t start a conversation if it didn’t change once in a while. -Kin Hubbard

Join us for a multi-disciplinary, multi-generational project to design, build, and deploy a weather station at the AIC. The station will gather weather data and make it available on the web. In the first 4-week session, participants will complete project launch tasks. Tasks will include specifying requirements, defining the hardware and software architecture, and initial prototyping. Meeting at the AIC on Sunday afternoons and on Zoom Thursday evenings, students will learn:

  • Project definition and management
  • Embedded system design and programming
  • Mechanical design
  • Full stack web programming
  • Data analysis

This class is suited for all ages (Middle School and up). No special skills or experience needed.
