Looking for Product Designers - We need your help!

Image
The Clean Air Frome team have been producing and building our own sensor units for a few months now.  The units are good and do the job,  however we want to make them even better.  Is this something you can help with?  We are looking for people with product design experience who can help design better units, that are waterproof, work with the components and are easy to assemble.
If you think you can help please get in touch with the team - team@cleanairfrome.org
