Hackidemia launching its first ever workshop in Beijing China

Author: Yiqing Liang

Hackidemia is working with Beijing Makerspace to launch an Air Quality workshop in Beijing China in late July.

Living in a polluted environment can cost our health. We are all aware that air pollution, indoor and outdoor, is linked directly to lung disease, respiratory health problems, and to increased risk to heart disease. The impact on health is more severe to children, elderly and people who are already ill.

We want to take matter into our own hands, and we do so starting from identifying the polluted elements and quantifying the pollution level. Once the pollution become measurable, we can begin to discuss the methods we can employ to improve the air quality. For example, we can grow plants inside our house to improve humidity, or stop smoking indoors.

About Beijing Makerspace:

北京创客空间拥有一个开放的实验室平台,让艺术家,设计师,软硬件高手,DIY达人甚至任何人都有机会提出他们的想法,认识志同道和的朋友,运用和发展现有的开源和学术研究成果来把这些想法变成现实,并开放我们的成果供他人进一步研究,同时坚持不懈的尝试将创新成果运用到现实生活中。
同时,我们也提供独特的学习机会和项目孵化。

Beijing Makerspace is a social enterprise founded by Flamingo and Justin. Our mission is to encourage social innovation and develop the open-source hardware ecosystem by building a physical and online community where people can learn, share and work on projects and make the result available for public use. Like open-source software, open source hardware is the culture of people sharing their experience in build something, and anybody can take this idea and build their own hardware. The beauty of knowledge-sharing is that people can build on and improve what others have already achieved and that we believe this will accelerate the process of innovation not only locally but also globally.

When:

Late July (Date and time to be confirmed)
