In this session, participants will use basic electronic components and code to prototype OS scientific Hardware. Their projects can be inspired by requests/necessities of the scientific community (coming from an online survey that will run previously) or be suggested/created by the participants themselves.

Once they have established what they want to build, they will start an online repository and document their progress on the go (if not familiar with online repositories, they will receive a short intro and \learn as they go" - and guided as necessary). We will also discuss particularities in building open hardware and more specifically of hardware for science (calibration, reliability, trust from the community)."

This is a Shed session.
