Harmony School of Fine Arts & Technology Houston, Texas
After Ms. Kulow finished CELF’s Civic Science Program, she engaged her online students in an air quality project. The Harmony School campus is situated in an industrial area and at times, the air may smell like chemicals or car exhaust. Ms. Kulow and her students felt it was important to find out whether or not the pollution levels are hazardous to our students’ health. Using the Plume Labs Flow device, Ms. Kulow and her students collected air quality data and discovered that there are short periods of time when fine particulate matter (PM 2.5) was very high. Now that the students are back in the classroom, Ms. Kulow is finding ways to incorporate additional sources of air quality monitoring data and devices into the study.
