Environmental Sensor Hub

Welcome to the King’s College London Environmental Sensor Hub

Design and Build Your Own Environmental sensors

The environmental sensor hub is a team of academics developing, deploying and teaching how to build and use Open Hardware environmental sensors for scientific purposes.

electronic Basics

We cover the core knowledge necessary to connect and communicate with sensors

theory & Practical

Theoretical lessons to compliment and fully understand the technology

Hands-on training

A learn-by-doing approach consisting of building, programming and calibrating components

Deployment environment

Taught dataloggers can be universally applied including in your own application​

3-Day introductory Course

We offer 3-day intensive courses leading you through the theory, application, deployment and data collection of your bespoke environmental sensors.

Days schedule




Electronics basics, programming in Arduino IDE and interfacing sensors


deployment considerations

Field-day collecting data from deployed sensors.


interfacing bespoke sensors

Sensor communication, measurements, calibration and discussion of common putfalls

Register your interest

The deadline to apply to our next training has passed.

Please however register your interest and we’d be happy to let you know when we next arrange a training.

Practical guides, Build-of-Materials, and build instructions

Post-session material to make the most after the course
