The Weather Machine

Run by Makintus (Marcos Menéndez)

Weather determinates timing and and rhythms in agriculture. “If it rains, there is no sowing today”, “Last night we had a heavy frost!”, “Yesterday it was the most sizzling day in the whole summer!”… Bar and elevator talking. However, we get formal data from a central node AEMET and we do not have precise and on site information, so the forecasts is not always accurate. This workshop suggests a self-management of these sets of data to use them, share them and do predictions. We are going to build our own weather station using a 3D printer and Arduino. We will gather data and publish it on the internet so we can easily plan our work and leisure time.
