BAAQMD: CanSat Air Quality Student Expo in San Leandro

The community came together to share and learn the importance the air quality is to our health and what we can do to improve it. Led by their teacher, Megan Thaler, and TK-12 Instructional Coach, Gaia Pine, students from Environmental Science and Chemistry classes ran the experiment, captured sensor data, concluded the findings and helped setup the Air Quality Student Expo at the Barbara Lee Health and Wellness Center in San Leandro. Using the CanSat: Air Quality Monitor and with the help of the teachers, we have developed 2 Air Quality and Environment lessons, the impact of air quality and asthma.

This is a partnership of the…
