Kids Making Sense® is a hands-on program that educators can use to teach students how to measure and monitor air quality and weather, to interpret the data they collect, and to take action to reduce their exposure to air pollution. The program consists of STEM-based curriculum, hand-held air sensor technology, and support from professional air quality scientists.
The Kids Making Sense® program motivates youth to drive positive change and improve public health by collecting credible air quality data around their neighborhoods. Students participate in hands-on science tasks, discuss their findings with an air quality scientist, and share their data with the global air quality community. They can even use their data to identify local sources of air pollution and take actions to be part of the solution.
Worldwide Project Locations
The Kids Making Sense program has been implemented by students and teachers all throughout the world! Many of these locations have designed experiments within their community to measure air quality and used the results to make changes within their community. Check out the interactive map to see what countries, states, and cities have used Kids Making Sense to enhance their environmental education programs!
