The development of low-cost, 3D-printed weather stations aims to revolutionize the way communities collect long-term data about local weather phenomenon, as well as develop climate resilience strategies to adapt to the impacts of increasingly uncertain climate trends. This session will engage teachers and scientists in the evaluation and participatory design of the IoTwx 3D-printed weather station that is designed to be constructed and extended by students in middle and high school. We aim to explore the full spectrum of the station from construction (from pre-printed parts), to data collection and development of learning activities, to analysis of scientific phenomenon within the data. The stations also represent a unique opportunity to develop community-based strategies to extend the capabilities of the platform, and in the session we are encouraging full discussion of data collection and sensing technologies of specific relevance to communities adopting the stations.

In the proposed working session, we will work directly with teachers on evaluation and development using a participatory design approach. The ESIP Education Committee is actively identifying DC-area schools to work with over the long term, and this session will stimulate and encourage those relationships. We anticipate identifying three to seven DC-area teachers to work with the ESIP Education Committee members and facilitators to conduct and complete the working session.
