This Ignite! project will fund two state-of-the-art wifi-connected weather and air quality monitoring stations, with one to be deployed at LSE (St Clement Building), and the other at Juniper Hall Field Studies Centre (Dorking). The monitoring stations and their datasets will provide an array of new experiential teaching and real-world problem-solving opportunities. Activities will include supplemental data visualisation course classes (with students using Google Data Studio to build ‘realtime data dashboards’); class trips to inspect the LSE monitoring station; integration with the new first-year fieldtrip; new options for formative and summative assessment; and a co-curricular ‘hackathon’ DIY monitoring and data vis workshop with guest judges from BBC Weather, and a leading digital marketing firm.
