So there's a whole slew of potential rich conceptual framework to, to work within. And so what the narrative, what the story that the teams are telling through their creative expression is unique to every team. Some teams are interested in engaging the public about their perceptions of climate change.

Some are interested in communicating real time data. Through information graphics, whether that's illumination or text or some other means that show how the renewable energy is functioning. How much energy is creating an a moment in time, over a period of time. And so there are all a lot of different ways that teams approach the design brief based on what kind of story they want to tell.

We can tell stories and we can tell stories about solar panels and wind farms being put into place. At the same time. It can tell stories about Lake Mead shrinking because Las Vegas grows too quickly. And literally thousands of stories are possible.

Each one though, because they're visual really burn themselves into your retina and get right into your cortex. So it's like a direct path in that lets you emotionally engage with the whole idea that the earth is changing under our feet rapidly because of the decisions we make.

And on any given day, the map, we can map out where the bad smells are flowing through the atmosphere around Pittsburgh. And those data points correlate with what we see on monitors. And so it helps us detect, so human smell is very sensitive. And the It's a good monitoring technique too, to tune into when something smells bad. And it's one data point that can be combined with what the monitors are showing, what the cameras were showing. We've seen many incidents where some people in a community will smell something. They'll report it on Twitter and recorded on the smell Pittsburgh app that will prompt us to go and look at cameras.
And lo and behold, many times we see. Two hours before that smells detected, there was an eruption at one of these major facilities that exists around the Pittsburgh area. So it's that combination of people and their daily experience and quality of life wanting to improve it. Using technology to record and collect data integrated with other sources of information and data, and then take action.

And that is the best combination of citizen science
