Kids Making Sense® Air Quality Kits teach students how to measure air pollution using low-cost air quality sensors, interpret the data they collect, and take action to reduce emissions and exposure to air pollution.
Note: This version of the kit is best for teachers whose students can use personal cell phones to install the free AirCasting app, or who have classroom access to Bluetooth and Wi-Fi enabled tablets that can download the app. We provide specific steps for how to download and configure the app. If you would prefer a kit that includes preconfigured Android smartphones with app installed and configured, please see the alternate kit option.
This kit for groups of 5-10 students includes everything you need to run the program in a small class. Kits are reusable, and teachers only need to purchase a few consumables once the included supplies have been used up.
Here is what is included in the kit:
Note: For groups or class sizes with 10 or more students, we recommend our Classroom Kits. Ask us about bulk discounts.
