The community center in Guapiruvu, Sao Paulo state
It's been a few months since my arrival in Brazil, but I'm settling in quite nicely. With colleagues here, we've completed some public outreach work in Guapiruvu, an agroforestry community that my colleagues use as a model for more difficult forest teaching environments elsewhere in the country. This vibrant community is a few hours to the west of Campinas, where we're currently working with students to train them in coding and electronics prototyping. Our aim is that during the winter and upcoming spring semester, we'll be able to prototype and test the digital lab kits here in Campinas and Guapiruvu before taking them up to the Amazon River basin at the end of the year.
We have enough funding to prototype the project and construct a few kits, but further assistance can help us go further, so please tell your friends about this project. We're hoping to fund a few of the students who are working to design and build the kits to come with us to Parintins to supervise the initial deployments and gain valuable field experience.
