Project Night!

We're now meeting once a month to do cool stuff. Join a conversation, or bring your own idea to pitch!

We've got a bunch of awesome projects underway:

DIY air quality monitoring: Help us figure out how to build, install, use, and share air quality monitors and data. We're especially keen on how to create school programs to teach kids about air pollution, air quality data, and what they can do to use data to influence policy.

Grassroots bioblitzes: We're building an ongoing program of grassroots, citizen science bioblitzes where we use our smartphones and the iNaturalist platform to gather tons of data about the plants, animals, and fungi of local parks. Awesome!

Monitoring change: We created a project to monitor landscape change and fire recovery. Help us refine the project and work on exporting the model.

Drones for Science: We have a slew of cool partners to create hardware to study the outdoors.

Your project? Nerds for Nature is all volunteer, all grassroots. Bring your project ideas!

    Hi I am another Newbie but I am looking at running a fixed point project across the whole of Scotland monitoring landscape change (and I get to do it as my day job!!) so keen to grasp some of the finer points of this to help me convince my boss that citizen science is the way to go on this!!

    Howdy! This will be my first N4N meeting. I don't have a particular project in mind, but I'm interested in hearing what's going on and contributing however I can.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
