Public Lab is a community which develops and applies open-source tools to environmental exploration and investigation. By democratizing inexpensive and accessible Do-It-Yourself techniques, Public Lab creates a collaborative network of practitioners who actively re-imagine the human relationship with the environment. Public Lab has created a number of low cost tools for monitoring including aerial imaging, remote sensing, and water and air quality monitoring. At OKFestival, we'll aim to facilitate the learning process of embedding Public Lab methodology into DIY style making for environmental good. Participants will learn the importance of grassroots co-creation in conceptualizing tools and techniques for environmental health monitoring. It will demonstrate the importance of community involvement in metholodogical design, from the first step of problem identification, to show how open hardware and software tools can be scaled and replicated into other locations.
