Getting kids involved with science and engineering can be kind of hard. That's why I was so thrilled by this project from my adopted home town of Münster...
This cool little box can easily be built by citizen scientists, hobbyists and kids (not that the terms are mutually exclusive).
Sensor Data (temperature, airpressure and so on) is collected and sent back to a server along with geolocation information for the box and can be displayed on a map.
The design uses Open Hardware and everything seems to have been made available on github
