Ninth grade Earth Science students investigated air quality in urban communities impacted by COVID-19. This topic immediately felt relevant to the students. Using CELF's Inquiry to Action framework, they explored the link between long-term exposure to poor air quality and higher rates of respiratory illnesses and susceptibility to severe complications from COVID-19. Students shared and revised their research through interaction with an atmospheric scientist and presented their research and solutions at CELF's virtual Student Symposium.
