Materials List: Study Design for Air Quality Research

Each group needs:

To share with the entire class:

To share with the entire class for the students’ research project data collection (post-activity):

  • air quality monitors, such as a rented AQ-IQ Kit (containing 2 Pod low-cost air quality monitors) from the University of Colorado Boulder, or another low-cost monitor with multiple gas-phase sensors; see the Other section for details on obtaining Pods or other monitors
  • OR alternatively, have students plan and conduct research studies using existing publicly available data so air monitoring equipment is not needed; see the Project Overview Sheet for suggested sources
