BWRC Breakfast Talk: CSI on the Waterfront
February 27, 2015 @ 8:30 am - 10:00 am
The first BWRC Breakfast Talk of 2015 is with Eymund Diegel on Friday, February 27at Citytech in A632 from 8:30am to 10:00am:
on the Waterfront
Urban planner and citizen-scientist Eymund Diegel has used kites, helium-filled balloons, and inexpensive cameras for the aerial photography that has helped him chart the environmental history of the land and the people of his neighborhood along the Brooklyn waterfront.
Diegel is a board member of the Public Laboratory for Open Technology and Science (Public Lab), a loosely organized community that practices “civic science.” He will speak about some of his discoveries, the tools that were employed to make them, and the way these discoveries can be used to improve the environmental conditions of his Gowanus neighborhood.
Pastries, juice, and coffee will be served.
