The sensors, called “CairClip”, are commercially available. EPA is not directly distributing the sensors to the public for independent research or citizen science. In Houston the EPA will assess how some new technologies compare to current air quality measurements developed and used by EPA, often called Federal Reference Methods (FRM). The purpose is to test the accuracy of the new compact sensor technologies compared to established methods currently used to monitor air quality. In addition EPA scientists will assess improvements to the established air quality measurement technologies for the air pollutants ozone (O3) and nitrogen dioxide (NO2). EPA provides Teacher Resources and Lesson Plans covering air and other environmental topics—I hope you’ll take a look! http://www.epa.gov/students/teachers.html

Thanks.

It’s amazing the students give feedback and proud to collect AQ data for research program. All stakeholders could be benefit and they begin to save this planet. Good Luck Dana and Team…….!!!!!
