LONDON RIVERS WEEK: What’s In Your River?

29th May 2019 @ 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm


London Rivers WeekAn afternoon of hands-on lab science and live data collection on the latest science and tech for understanding London’s rivers at King’s College London Geography Laboratory! 

  • Take a jam jar, bring a sample of water in your local stream and we’ll help you identify the mini-beasts inside. Your effort will help our London-wide monitoring programme.
  • Bring some water – from your stream, tap, water bottle.  We will run it through our analytical kit with you and indicate what is in it.  
  • Learn about our FreeStation project which is making low cost, Internet of Things Sensors monitoring London’s rivers and streams.  Look over the live data dashboard and have a go at building your own Arduino based sensors.  We’ll even send you home with an Arduino of your own to play with!
  • Learn about our work with hardware and software models for understanding flood risk to London and natural flood management schemes using leaky damn and Eurasian Beavers!
