In the not-so-distant future you will read of a scientific breakthrough in an area your daughter was excited about in school. In the journal article you will click on the supplementary materials and be able to download all of the source code needed to replicate the instruments used to do the experiment. You will fire up your home 3-D printer to fabricate the equipment. Then, with a few more clicks, you will order any specialty supplies.

By the weekend all the supplies will have arrived and now you and your daughter will have the fun of assembling the experiment and participating in state-of-the-art research for almost no money on a quiet Saturday afternoon. This exciting future of science is closer than you might think. Scientists from all over the world are radically reducing the costs of experimental research while simultaneously improving it. If you are a working scientist, it is in your best interest to share the designs for your hardware. The little stuff is obvious. Joshua M.

Oceanography for Everyone. Open Science and Innovation: Of the People, By the People, For the People. Conrad hilchey 2011 review. Tech and Innovation to Re-engage Civic Life. Data for Community-Driven Solutions This series focuses on data for impact, and highlight specific interventions that can help drive a more networked, inclusive, and open society. Sometimes even the best-intentioned policymakers overlook the power of people. And even the best-intentioned discussions on social impact and leveraging big data for the social sector can obscure the power of every-day people in their communities.

But time and time again, I’ve seen the transformative power of civic engagement when initiatives are structured well. For example, the other year I witnessed a high school student walk into a school auditorium one evening during Boston’s first-ever youth-driven participatory budgeting project. For many of the young participants, ages 12-25, being part of a participatory budgeting initiative is the first time they are involved in civic life. This is just one example of a broader civic and social innovation trend. Using Technology to Distribute Expertise. Three centuries of citizen science | Science Museum Blog.

Even though the term ‘citizen science’ only entered the Oxford English Dictionary last year, the practice is several centuries old, as quickly becomes evident when thumbing through back issues of the oldest journal dedicated to science. Philosophical Transactions, which celebrates its 350th birthday on 6 March, has plenty of evidence of citizen science that dates back long before the 20th century, before the internet put terabytes of data at our fingertips, long before TV and long before even the term ‘scientist’ was coined in 1833. Three centuries ago, in 1715, Edmund Halley used Philosophical Transactions to ask colleagues to help him observe a total solar eclipse, prompting observers from all over the country to respond. Halley’s solar eclipse observations printed in Philosophical Transactions. Credit: Royal Society Creature surveys date back a long time.

The first experiment, which was in the latter category, was conducted with Prof Richard Wiseman of the University of Hertfordshire. Digital Environmentalism 2012. Citizen Science in Europe: opportunities in Life Sciences, Vita Scien… Les récifs coralliens dans la tourmente du changement global. Les récifs coralliens constituent l’écosystème marin le plus diversifié de la planète et fournissent beaucoup de produits et de services de l’écosystème. L’écosystème récifal assure notamment la nutrition des populations riveraines tropicales grâce aux pêcheries et leur fournit un revenu par le biais du tourisme. Il garantit aussi la protection du littoral contre l’érosion, les effets délétères des ouragans et de l’élévation du niveau de la mer associée au réchauffement climatique.

Cependant, les récifs coralliens sont aujourd’hui extrêmement menacés, non seulement à une échelle locale par action anthropique directe, mais aussi à l’échelle planétaire en liaison avec le changement climatique. L’état de santé de l’écosystème corallien est étroitement lié au fonctionnement et à l’interaction des trois compartiments clés, coraux, algues et herbivores (poissons, oursins).

Plancton

One for All: Protist Power: Colomban de Vargas at TEDxRio+20. Culture phytoplancton. Cultiver son phytoplancton à la maison - Animaux du récif... Trop, c'est pas assez! Bonjour! Aujourd'hui, je vais faire un petit recap' sur la culture de phytoplancton, à faire chez soi. Si j'y arrive, c'est que c'est vraiment à la portée de tout le monde, étant une réelle adepte du moindre effort, un savant mélange de phobie du bricolage et un gros baobab dans la main...

Je souffre aussi de manque d'espace pour faire toutes ces cultures super pour les bacs... Je ne peux pas placer de refuge, j'ai pas de cuve annexe, bref, il faut batailler pour trouver 20cm² de libre autour du bac. Voici donc mon "installation": Je cultive deux algues, la Dunaliella (vert foncée) et la Nannochloropsis salina (vert/jaune). Pourquoi multiplier les souches? Pourquoi se donner la peine de cultiver les souches séparément? Pourquoi les vendeurs de phyto vendent des mélanges, alors? Passons à la méthode de culture:Matériel: - une bouteille de coca 2 litres, bien lavée, par souche. Il faut percer un trou sur le bouchon de la bouteille, en haut, pour laisser passer un tuyau à air.

Water level or salinity sensor module for Arduino [SEN_WAT_LEV01] - $4.99 : Elechouse, Arduino Play House. Model: SEN_WAT_LEV01 Units in Stock: 153 Date Added: Friday 07 June, 2013 Product Description: Introduction With this module, you could easily get water (in fact any conducting liquid) surface level.

It is useful in the cases that you need warning if liquid in the holder is less than or over certain amount. Another usage of this module is to detect the electroconductivity of liquid. Hardware connection With our Sensor Shield V7 for Arduino you could plug in and play. Example Connect the module with Arduino. Void setup(){ Serial.begin(9600); void loop(){ Serial.print("Water level Sensor Value:"); Serial.println(analogRead(A5)); delay(100); Put the module in a glass of water: Note that the water surface should be below the silver tin lines on the module. Open serial Monitor and you could read the value. Now you could add water to the glass, you could see the value increases.
