Citizen science in schools

For the upcoming 23/24 school year, Academy of the Near Future is teaming up with I-Change researchers based in UCD to continue delivering a citizen science initiative to Transition Year students across Ireland.

We will run a three-part workshop series in schools, initiating a community-based citizen science project around the theme of ‘Active Travel’.

Students will use air quality, traffic, and weather monitoring sensors to capture local air pollution data, identify key environmental problems and develop creative solutions to help solve these challenges!
