Public Lab is an open community which collaboratively develops accessible, open source, Do-It-Yourself technologies for investigating local environmental health and justice issues.
Summer of Code
Public Lab has received support for students and other contributors to work on Public Lab software projects via both [Rails Girls Summer of Code](https://railsgirlssummerofcode.org/) and [Google's Summer of Code](http://summerofcode.withgoogle.com) programs -- 2017 is our fourth great year of open source coding! Also see #gsoc for more.
This is a key way that we are able to develop our collaborative platform (this site) as well as other Public Lab coding projects.
