WNYC/Radiolab is tracking when the cicadas return on their 17-year cycle with a simple microcontroller based soil thermometer. We helped design the cheaper kit based on an earlier design by WNYC.

Join us on Saturday April 13 to build and hack the kit. The kit is $20. You can also bring the original WNYC design or your own version and we’ll help you put it together, or you can just hang out and work on some other electronics project.

Stop by at any time between noon and 4pm.

    It was a fun project. We really like the connection to a crowd-source citizen science data project.
