In Episode 18, I talk with Tristan Copley-Smith of the OpenSource Beehives project. Open Source Beehives is a network of citizen scientists saving bees and tracking bee decline. Using open source fabrication, they allow everyday citizens to host their very own bee colony and with sensor enhanced beehives and data science, citizen scientists study honeybee colonies throughout the world. Want to start your very own beehive or get involved in saving these very important creatures? You can find out more about it at www.opensourcebeehives.net or @OSBeehives on Twitter. Tristan’s background is as a documentary filmmaker, and he is now the communications director for Open Source Beehives. You can find Tristan @trizcs on Twitter.
