What I want to do
Here are some videos documenting Lauren Sullivan, Don Blair, and Scott Eustis (with a head cold) learning and teaching and building on arduinos and breadboards and scribbling things on a whiteboard.
Kenny came around and helped out by listening to our crazy talk about doodads and gizmos. Thanks, Kenny.
What's a bioindicator? basic arduino and breadboard stuff why the riffle --why a low cost water monitor with qualitative feedback what's the point? Why open source? riffle, sniffle, coqui, nymph, tadpole, odonate, (Lolliguncula?) why do we want to measure depth? Why do we want to measure depth in new orleans?
background on depth
Depth measurements based on Dan Beavers' insights into capacitance, and all the physics and discussion on this website, By Nathan Hurst, Stevie Cummings, Ken Sheridan, Darryl, and Andy Bartram http://njhurst.com/electronics/watersensor/
My attempt and results NOT for Prime Time
Lauren on Bioindicators https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ltgmy0XtmDU
What can a nymph tell us about our water, or what can the riffle tell us? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ealjTTFL8Z8
Scott Sleepily explains the sensor to Kenny, and subsidence in new orleans https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YFIYfukdwps

Scott and the temp sensor https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eyI6tk8Wxt0
Lauren and Don are excited https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eL7LNA7ajPo
Arduino and 555 for depth and temperature sensors
Mega Ohms to make sounds audible
Questions and next steps
What kinds of videos could be done for Science TV?
