We are excited to be supporting mathematics masters student Aravind Mohandas with a project funded by the Google Summer of Code programme. This summer he will be formalising aspects of the South Indian Carnatic tradition of Konnakol vocal patterns.
(Afro|Algo)futures is an annual mentoring programme for early career Black artists based in the West Midlands, who want to explore the creative potential of live coding.
We are looking for an additional new Non-Executive Director to help guide the direction of Then Try This. Could it be you, or someone you know?
We have a chance to expand the Local Climate Adaptation Tool from its prototype stage - this post outlines our priorities, including better underlying data and ways of navigating complex networks of climate impacts.
This post outlines how the Evidence Support Initiative placement scheme for researchers in councils could work and be rolled out nationally, based on our pilot experience and the results of co-design with cross-party councils and researchers.
We've been developing new air pollution sensors with real-time displays for on-street use, with support from researchers in health messaging and health impacts, and input from Cornwall Council.
Notes on the process we used to design the award winning Local Climate Adaptation Tool for the European Centre for Environment and Human Health at the University of Exeter and Cornwall Council.
The Climate Challenge Cup included finalists from across the US and UK and celebrated existing partnerships between research organisations, civic authorities and local communities. The Local Climate Adaptation Tool was was developed with researchers from Exeter University and Cornwall Council and showcased at COP26 in the Green Zone.

We've been looking for inspiration on creative ways to publicly display/sonify air pollution data, and have put together this short post to showcase some inventive ways that other people/organisations have chosen to visualise/sonify data.
Poor air quality is an increasing global concern and has significant health impacts. For researchers and citizen scientists to monitor air quality effectively, they need access to air pollution sensors that collect reliable data. Commercial air quality monitoring devices are often expensive, and so many citizen science projects have turned to DIY devices assembled from affordable components. At Then Try This, we are looking to develop our own low-cost, portable …
Tablet Woven Maypole-Dancing Robots feature in a new article, as part of our ongoing Penelope project with the Deutsches Museum in Munich.
HackSpace magazine has written a great feature about citizen science projects around the world, and our Sonic Kayak is one of the main case studies.
New water and air pollution sensors added to the Sonic Kayak citizen science system for low cost environmental mapping
The first iteration of the (Algo|Afro)futures programme is complete, enjoy the final performances as they were live streamed from VIVID projects, Birmingham.
At the end of 2019 we were ready to begin work on our second iteration of the Viruscraft project, moving focus from how viruses jump from one species to another, to how they evolve once they are in a population. This project has been focused from the start on designing and building physical interfaces to help understand invisible biological interactions between viruses, host organisms and evolution. Our new plans included …
The Evidence Support Initiative is a pilot project pairing science researchers with councils to facilitate evidence-based decision making, and learn about each other’s worlds, funded by Civic Square’s Dream Fund.
Showcase of participants' attempts at building bower bird architecture.
We’ve come to the end of the latest series of AccessLab workshops. This post is a debrief on how we’ve progressed and a review of the feedback.
We've repurposed our maypole robots so people can dance together safely (woven robots don't need to social distance).
