WVU to host DIY Environmental Sensor Workshop for STEM educators, researchers, state government

The Mountain Hydrology Laboratory, the Institute of Water Security and Science and the Davis College of Agriculture, Natural Resources and Design will host the Appalachian Freshwater Initiative Do-It-Yourself Environmental Sensor Workshop from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday, (March 2).

The goal of the workshop, made possible through funding from the National Science Foundation, is to introduce K-12 STEM educators, state government employees, community groups and researchers to innovative, open-source environmental monitoring systems that provide a low-cost alternative for monitoring water quality, quantity and climate in real-time. The workshop, which is currently filled to capacity, is offered free of charge.  

Members of the media who would like to attend the workshop should contact Nikky Luna 304.293.2394 or
