Public Lab is excited to announce that the 2016 Regional Barnraising will be hosted in Val Verde, Los Angeles County, California! Stay tuned for dates, registration and more details.
What is a Public Lab Barnraising?
The Public Lab Barnraising is the closest thing we have to a Public Lab conference -- but with an emphasis on "doing stuff together" rather than just presenting/talking. We come together to develop tools, toolkits, supporting materials such as guides and tutorials, test the tools and develop new research directions and projects. The Annual Barnraising event is held each fall in Louisiana.
Upcoming in 2016:
- 2016 Regional Barnraising: early summer, Val Verde, Los Angeles County, California.
- 2016 Barnraising: projected mid-October / early November in Louisiana.

About Regional Barnraisings: The first Regional Barnraising was held in Spring, 2014 in Plymouth, Massachusetts. This was a great way to draw new Public Labbers in, focus on regional issues and cater to people who are unable to travel to our yearly Barnraising in Louisiana.
Recognizing the growth of the Public Lab Midwest community, the second annual Regional Barnraising was held in the summer of 2015 in Chicago, Illinois. Midwest projects such as hydrogen sulfide sensing, petcoke mapping and dust monitoring laid the groundwork for a fantastic and dynamic regional event.
