SEEING IS BELIEVING: Using Air Quality Monitoring for Community Science
What: Workshop on using low-cost, real-time air quality monitors for environmental justice
When: Monday, April 8th (6:15PM - 8:00 PM)
Where: School of Public Health Building, MIAEH Conference Room (2234CC)
Many Maryland communities are threatened by high levels of air pollution and residents know they're breathing toxic air, but regulators and policymakers want proof. Join us for a workshop on using low-cost, real-time sensors to get communities the data they need. This workshop will demonstrate sensors used to monitor particulate matter (PM), volatile organic compounds (VOCs), and nitrogen oxides (NOx)--are air pollutants critical to public health and regulated by the Environmental Protection Agency. Attendees will learn how to deploy these sensors and engage in a data collection activity to see how these tools can provide data to environmental justice communities.
