bGeigie Workshop Santa Monica, CA November 1-2, 2014.
Build a GPS-enabled, data-logging, hand-held radiation detector, learn about citizen radiation monitoring, and connect with a growing network of people motivated to measure radiation in their environment and share their data with others.
Safecast, the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) and IMI International Medcom, Inc. will host a bGeigie workshop at NRDC's offices in Santa Monica, CA on Saturday, November 1 and Sunday, November 2, 2014. During the first day of the workshop, participants will solder and assemble Safecast's Good Design-winning bGeigie, learn how to use their detectors, and hear from individuals and groups involved in citizen radiation monitoring. During the second day of the workshop, trips will be arranged for participants to log radiation measurements in the field, and practice uploading and mapping their data.
