Andrew, this project is incredible. Thank you so much for sharing! Andrew writes:
I just finished documenting a project I led in May creating a
floating, art and science laboratory from the ground up. It’s set up to help
monitor an endangered coral reef off the shore of a small fishing community
too poor to really protect it well themselves. The lab was designed to give
ownership of this natural resource to the community while providing a space
for education about designing sensors, electronics, and programming. It
currently hosts workshops that draw motivated folks from around the island
to come, clean up the sea, and build new tech to monitor the environmental
health of the region.
It’s made mostly from reclaimed bamboo tied together using traditional boat
This video overview will show you lots of details of the full project:

Here is an instructable covering how to build the project (This is probably the most thorough document covering the boat lab):
Here’s a free, printable book with illustrations and photos discussing the
whole project (PDF):
