Waag Society, Citizen Science
Gijs Boerwinkel is community manager at Waag Society. At this institute for art, science and technology he is constantly looking for new ways to involve communities in the researchlabs and projects that Waag Society is well known for througout the world.
He was recently involved in the Urban AirQ project, measuring air quality with low-cost sensors together with residents of some of Amsterdam’s most polluted streets. Waag Society’s new project that Gijs will talk about involves measuring radiation with smartphones.
