在6月份的空气净化器工作坊上，柴火会员Rachel展示了他们的项目Citizen Q的强大功能；现场的小伙伴们立刻就问什么时候举办一次工作坊，请Rachel教大家如何DIY一个Citizen Q环境监测仪。鉴于大家的热情以及强烈的要求，我们将于8月11日下午在柴火举办一场Citizen Q工作坊。欢迎大家参加哦！
At the Smart Air workshop at x.factory in June, Rachel showed the powerful functions of her project Citizen Q in detecting air quality. And many people immediately asked when we’d be able to host a Citizen Q workshop for the community to learn & DIY one Citizen Q. And here it comes: we’ll host a Citizen Q workshop at x.factory on August 11th afternoon! Welcome to join us!

If you do not know Citizen Q yet, Project Citizen Q is an environmental awareness project based on an Open Source Hardware design tested and widely distributed in Germany, and Rachel is the project initiator.
Rachel and the team have been working on the Asian network extension and bringing cheap but decent environment sensor stations to the people. Ones that are not so inferior to the ones that cost ten times the price, she wants people to learn to take matters into their own hands, rather than being the user of what is posing as, let’s face it, a black box:)

当Rachel第一次走在德国的路上，她忍不住想：“我能闻到树木的味道！” 她后来发现，很多德国家庭都亲手制作空气质量检测仪，就像我们将在本次工作坊制作的环境监测站一样！她首先决定为自己做一个，然而，在中国似乎没有开源的AQI（空气质量监测）网络。这就是她如何将其作为发起Citizen Q项目的使命。“就算不是我，也需要有其他人做。”Rachel评论道。
When Rachel first walked upon the paths of Germany, she couldn’t help thinking: "I can smell the trees!” As she later on discovered, a lot of households all over Germany took the matter of monitoring air quality in their own hands and build their environment monitoring stations just like the one we’ll build in this workshop! She first decided to build one for herself. However, it didn’t seem like there was an open source AQI network in China. And that was how she took it as her mission to start up project Citizen Q. “If it isn’t me, there needs to be someone else doing this.” Rachel remarked.

After several months of research and development and testing, the workshops are finally coming out!
The workshop on August 11th will be providing materials needed to detect PM10/2.5, temperature and humidity. By partaking in this workshop, you will be joining in the global open hardware community and supporting the construction and distribution of more units and this crowdsourced AQI monitoring network.
