The Public Lab Store Starter kits for DIY environmental science

As part of our mission to provide access to low-cost, open source hardware, we offer kits for sale through our online store.

The ideas presented here were developed by our community. Our designs are all open source, released through the Cern Open Hardware License. You can build many of our kits on your own using available materials. We hope to provide a convenient source for the hardware needed to build these designs.


Want to carry our kits in your own store? Order wholesale! Contact the kits team.

Community Science Forum: Frac Sand

Our quarterly print publication has a new name, and a wider scope. It's now called the Community Science Forum. This issue is focused on frac sand, and in particular on the work being done in western Wisconsin by community groups concerned about air and water quality impacts of mining operations there.

Usually $5, we're offering the new issue at an experimental price of $2 plus shipping.
