Happy Spring Everyone!

Back at the end of January Public Lab launched another collaborative research area review, this time on soil contamination. Here's what's been happening...

Tomorrow is the official wrap-up event where we'll highlight what we learned and created during the soil contamination review on Wednesday, Mar. 31, at 8:30 am PT / 11:30 am ET / 3:30 pm UTC. This event will run for approximately 1 hr 15 minutes. How to join here

As in previous reviews, we gathered and synthesized information from, other online resources, and conversations with people sharing their knowledge and experiences. You can expect to learn about the following focus areas:

  • Building out information on soil testing methods and tools, focusing on progress in DIY methods for detecting metals and organic contaminants and methods for evaluating / interpreting soil test results.
  • Expanding the context on Public Lab's main soil pages to tie together existing content and highlight ways to get involved with soil research and tool development.
  • Supporting any updates to community soil testing projects and tools on the Public Lab website.
Also happening this week:
  • Join Public Lab and Citizen Science Community Resources for a VIRTUAL LIVE BUILD DEMO, Wednesday March 31 at 10am PT / 1pm ET / other time zones. Come learn more about the Soil Sampling Toolkit. You can click here for more details.
