Citizen science urban microclimates  - Broadmeadows

1 – 3pm, Friday 1 March
Meet at Broadmeadows Library
1093 Pascoe Vale Road, Broadmeadows

Broadmeadows residents - If you've ever wondered why your weather app says it's 24 degrees celcius, but it actually feels more like 30 degrees when you walk down the street, the reason is that certain surfaces trap the sun's heat. On warm days, concrete paths next to bituman roads are likely to be hotter than grassy areas protected by shade.

RMIT and Hume City Council are collaborating to run citizen science workshops where you learn how to measure the temperature, humidity and windspeed in different microclimates. 

Bring walking shoes and re-fillable water bottle.
