Schools Air Quality Monitoring for Health and Education

Location: London, United Kingdom

Description: SAMHE brings together pupils, teachers, scientists from 6 institutions across the UK and is supported by the UK Governments' Department for Education. SAMHE will establish a network of air quality monitors in schools across the UK, creating an unparalleled dataset which will help researchers better understand schools' indoor air quality and provide evidence for better national policies and practice. This will enable pupils to interact with real world data about their environment and gives them agency to take informed action.
