We had an awesome first event, demonstrating five ‘Sniffy’ sensors at the Research and Innovation Conference, hosted by Solent University in Southampton. It was the first public event for Air Watch, where our citizen science idea and the first set of sensors were presented to an audience of students and academics. Putting all our hard work to a first test, the presented concept was engaging and simple – we used incense cones in the middle of a table to show how the sensors detect particular matter in the smoke and displayed the live data on the wall. Even though the audience was small, we had very good feedback and were able to connect with more people in different fields to increase awareness about the project. Stay tuned for further events and opportunities to see Sniffy in action!
