WaterBot

 

WaterBot is a citizen scientist project that prototypes a low-cost, easy and mobile method to monitor small streams. The water-sensing bot measures temperature and conductivity as indirect measurements of Total Dissolved Solids, indicating changes in water quality. The data is transmitted from the bot and automatically uploaded to waterbot.org in real-time with the goal of empowering communities, educators and youth to monitor and log the effects of industry and pollution on their watershed systems.
