The Great Global Hackerspace Challenge

For those of you who may not know, we at Pumping Station: One are participating in the Great Global Hackerspace Challenge organised by Mitch Altman and sponsored by Element14.  They’re giving $900 to 30 hackerspaces around the world, and giving us 5 weeks to design something awesome for education.  There are hackerspaces from five continents participating! (Scroll down on this page and check out this neat map with all the participants.)

Our project will be to create a biosensor array that will allow students to learn more about their bodies and do some DIY biology.  We’re going to have heartbeat sensors, temperature, CO2 levels, EKG and more!  I’ll be re-posting updates here, but we’ll be posting directly on the project blog on the element14 site.  (Feel free to follow us there!)
