A first set of citizen-science workshops took place in our pilot cities in June 2018. These included a general introduction to the FloodCitiSense project, the exploration and assembling of the 1st generation raindrop counters as well as an exploration and get-to-know session of the FloodCitiSense application. We finished the workshop with a feedback session.
- Birmingham, 6 July, 2018 - 16 participants
- Brussels, June 17th, 2018 – 15 participants
- Rotterdam, June 29th, 2018, 17 participants
We organized a second set of citizen-science workshops in October 2019. These included a general introduction to the FloodCitiSense project, the presentation and building of the 2nd generation low-cost sensors and a presentation and testing session of the new versions of both the mobile and web applications. Again, we finished with a feedback session.
- Rotterdam, October 7th, 2019 – 14 participants
