Abstract

SILVA, R.B. et al. Open source weather stations: A research and technological development project. Rev. Bras. Ensino Fís. [online]. 2015, vol.37, n.1, 1505.  Epub Mar 30, 2015. ISSN 1806-1117.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1806-11173711685.

This paper reports an experience of scientific research and technological development: the construction of weather stations based on free hardware and software aimed at the formation of a citizen science network for meteorological and environmental monitoring. Students from different grade levels and subject areas are participating in this research and development project. The results are related to measurements with the first prototype from the Arduino platform.

Keywords : citizen science; weather instrumentation.
