Some ideas so far:

• Citizen science meets civic engagement: building water quality sensors to test in the Cam.

• DIY Biolab: join the open labware team making tools for molecular biology.

• ContentMining for species: find and map mentions of your favourite species in scientific papers.

Bring your hardware, software, project ideas or simply enthusiasm with you! People of all ages with lots and no experience welcome.
