Build free and open source science tools: Call for participation

It is with great enthusiasm that we call makers, DIYers, researchers and educators to build science and education tools people need!

This is the second step on our mapping project, where we asked researchers and educators worldwide what kind of tools they needed in their labs. The results of the survey are in, and now we want to engage communities to build the needed tools.

For this step, we will be executing a distributed building event.

More details can be found here, but in short, people interested should apply in groups of at least three people and be able to dedicate some time per week to build and document their prototypes, over a period of 3 months.

We will cover costs for components up to 800 dollars and help groups with documentation, knowledge generation and support with development by having weekly check ins and bringing in external expertise when necessary.

By the end of the 3 month period, groups will come together online to share their experiences and report where they want to take their projects.

Apply by following instructions in this form.

Applications are open until May 5th 2019.
