High School Students Join Ohio State Professors in Citizen Science Project

TDAI affiliate Ayaz Hyder and his colleague Andy May in civil, environmental and geodetic engineering are working with high school seniors to create low-cost air quality monitors that transmit data for use in curriculum and by the general public. 

The students are exploring ways to make the sensors, which will monitor carbon monoxide, ozone, nitrogen dioxide and particulate matter in the air, wireless and powered by solar panels. They are running connections from the sensors to a computer program that reads the values and will send them to a website.
