Workshop “Building PM sensors”
If you ever use apps like Airly, Smog Info, or Dymek, then you probably know that smog and air pollution are often measured by how much PM2.5 and PM10 are present in the air at a given location. But have you ever wondered about how those measurements are made?
In this workshop, participants will gain hands-on experience building Arduino-based, particulate matter (PM) sensors, configure the PM-sensing software, and monitor indoor particulate matter levels in real time. Best of all, you won’t need any experience with coding, electronics, or chemistry to follow along with the activity. Learn how scientists and researchers monitor air quality, and what you can do to keep your own home safe from particulate matter pollution.
