Lewis Middle School, Aldine ISD, Houston, TX
After taking CELF’s Civic Science Program in 2021, Michael Arratia started various water quality and air quality projects at Lewis Middle School. Students questioned if vehicular traffic and idling impact air quality at school. To help answer this question, the students used Plume Labs Flow Air Quality Device to measure air quality around the school. Another group of students studied Volatile Organic Compounds in the air, which they discovered emanating from cleaning products. The students will continue their projects and plan to collect data on soil, in addition to air and water.
