Air Quality with CanAirIO

I was recently reading the September/October 2022 issue of “Science Scope” a publication of the National Science Teaching Association.  In this issue, I read the Citizen Science column, written by Jill Nugent.  She wrote a column entitled, “Getting a Sense of Local Air Quality.”  

CanAirIO is a citizen science project using mobile and static sensors to measure air quality with cell phones and low-cost technology.  They are looking to build a citizen network, an air quality map that will allow them to know what we are breathing and how we can improve life quality.  With the data collected, official air quality numbers can be validated because what can be measured can be improved.  For more information, please visit:
