Livestream: An Educational Outreach Platform
Fall 2016 – Winter 2017
A mobile application that combines digital and analogue technology into an interactive toolkit to effectively transform citizens into geologists equipped to: (1) measure water quality using a wearable technology and (2) contribute data to the Livestream website—where recordings will be archived and publically-accessible.
This participatory action research platform will be supplemented by an educational outreach program dedicated to expanding geologic literacy and advancing a collective conversation regarding the ecological implications of groundwater quality throughout the Bluegrass and beyond.
By harnessing the power of art, science, and technology as a means to catalyze curiosity, Livestream invites individuals to tune into the Bluegrass so that, together, we might begin to imagine a more sustainable tomorrow, today...for our Commonwealth.
