BFOSH is a mentoring program developed during my fellowship with
Freies Wissen. It can be summarized as follows:
- In order to increase the reach and importance of Open Source Hardware in Science, we should developing research and educational tools based on demand.
- To learn what this demand was/is a survey was sent asking people what tools they needed in their institutions/community projects.
- Once the survey was concluded, a call for developers was made, and groups from different places in the world were supported with the components they needed to build a certain equipemnt, as well as weekly calls with assigned mentors to debate obstacles and help with other non-physical resources.
