Impressive project! Check out the write-up from the Berkeley Lab Newsletter, via raspberrypipod.

Here’s the project website for Dosenet as well.

Members of a high school science club gather in the school’s chemistry lab for a lunchtime meeting to learn about local, natural sources of radiation as a nearby wall-mounted sensor box with glowing LED lights collects live radiation data and feeds it to a website.

A network of these radiation-monitoring devices—designed and engineered by UC Berkeley students working with researchers at the Department of Energy’s Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab)—and a companion website and open-source code serve as educational and outreach tools for an international project called DoseNet that stretches from Northern California classrooms to a city hall in Japan.

Its broad aim is to inform and connect students and communities around the world using science and data as common ground.

2358Each Friday is PiDay here at Adafruit! Be sure to check out our posts, tutorials and new Raspberry Pi related products. Adafruit has the largest and best selection of Raspberry Pi accessories and all the code & tutorials to get you up and running in no time!


Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
