NextGenSS: Putting Next Generation Sensors & Scientists in practice to reduce wood smoke in a highly impacted, multi-cultural rural setting

This project seeks to understand community knowledge about air pollution and community needs for improvement in air pollution. The overall project will: 1. Deploy next generation low cost air particle sensors in student-directed studies pertaining to heavy wood smoke impacts in their rural community, 2. Evaluate sensor effectiveness in these collaborative studies, and 3. Identify effective platforms for data dissemination and communication by students to the broader community through multigenerational and multi-cultural outreach.
