Growing plants in extreme environments like Mars, the Moon, or on the South Pole? Impossible without reliable technologies to sustain a healthy environment for the plants and a good understanding of how to regulate that environment to make the plants grow over and over again. The AstroPlant network is an international network of citizen scientists, schools, and makers.
The second talk will be about an IoT device designed to identify accidents with bicycles. Bringing an idea from the scratch to a tangible prototype and transforming it to a final product, may be a challenging task in many ways. In this talk Paola Rodrigues (Trek Bikes IoT Trainee and Sensemakers organiser) will guide us through her journey of developing a Crash Notifier for bicycles from the conceptual idea up to a working prototype.
