Anyone from London?

Calling for DIY Scientists and Plant-loving geeks! During the upcoming "Space for Inspiration – ISS and beyond" conference, Border Labs and ESA organise another workshop to bring together relevant people for the European Space Farm Collective. At the Science Museum (in London) we will explore/continue exploring these two topics: 'Plant Characterization' (DIY Science) and 'Recipes for space' (global competition).

The first topic, 'Plant Characterisation' address the need (of ESA) to improve understanding of how plants grow under controllable conditions, in particular using techniques such hydroponics and aeroponics. Plant characterisation is a scientific process, but with some support, it's not difficult to engage with. In fact, we think it is a good candidate for a citizen science project, and that's what we will be developing during the workshop: the toolkit, protocols, sensors, and strategy for a successful DIY Citizen Science project. During the session in the Hague, and subsequently by some of the participants, a first outline of this toolkit has been made. We hope to make this a hands-on workshop that includes actual plants and sensors (your ideas are welcome).

The second topic, 'Recipes for Space', involves the idea of designing recipes that optimally address the various criteria for future food in space ('space-grown'), such as minimising resource use, growth time, required space; and maximising nutrition, edible biomass, and taste, plus various variables regarding CO2, O2, and more. Clearly, the conditions in space have significant relevance for earth (if we care about sustainable agriculture). This is a challenge that requires the collaboration between highly-qualified cooks, nutritionists, space engineers, and (urban) farmers. During the session, we will further define the criteria and work on a 'Chef's challenge', to be launched next year.​

​Please register at borderlabs.org or find us on Meetup (Border Labs)​! See you at the Science Museum!

Anyone from London? I'm organizing a workshop on an ESA space event in the science museum on space&urban farming. We would like to invite some people from the local urban farming/biohacker/tech community. Let me know, more info follows.

I expected a rant but it's quite positive and well-balanced.

BTW: I really like this paper about the topic +Pieter de Vries 

Thomas, M. J. W. (2002). Learning within incoherent structures: the space of online discussion forums. Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 18(3), 351–366. doi:10.1046/j.0266-4909.2002.03800.x

We (myself, +Pieter de Vries and others) are currently doing an analysis on our own MOOCs on the edX platform where we try to understand the interaction between students in 2 Facebook groups vs the edX forum in terms of  interaction, engagement and (peer-)facilitation towards successful completion. Also relate that with the cultural background and other factors. When we finish the conclusions (before next week), I will update this post.
