The Air Quality Action Project Program aims to reach students in low-income and underserved communities with high levels of air pollution to educate, empower, and activate youth to push for climate action.

The program will equip students in under-resourced schools and communities with air quality sensors to engage them in hands-on data collection and analysis, solutions design, and community-based climate action.

Educators will receive a Kids Making Sense air quality sensor kit and lesson modules to support students’ data collection and analysis skills. Upon the completion of the group’s data collection, students will develop a community-based action project informed by the data gathered. The goal is for students to disseminate the information to their community members and establish a foundation for community action. 

Educators will receive a kit with lesson modules to support students! (via Kids Making Sense)
