Monitoring the Backwaters of the Chesapeake Bay

Podcast host Mike Gatty chats with Shelly and Norman O’foran about their groundbreaking BOBs. Bobs — or Bay Observation Boxes — were developed by Norman using “Makerspace” open technology, and are low cost, easily deployable water monitors. Shelly — a retired English teacher — works with her husband to integrate the BOBS into their local school system, and together they’ve launched a community project that is both groundbreaking and daring.
