Folks at Puducherry are interested in building a community powered Weather Station. The idea was born in-order to experiment with Open hardware, if this project is successful, we shall setup similar stations around the locality (especially in rural areas, coastal areas, etc.,) which can help them better understand their region. Also we are trying to build it on a low-cost factor in order for other communities to take up this.
If taken to School children this project can also be used by the kids to learn.
The initial round of discussion happened on 17-6-15 (Wednesday) evening at Pondicherry Science Forum, on which this Etherpad was created in order to collaboratively work on this project.
