ASU/SciStarter Citizen Science partnership

Assessing Indoor Air Quality Kits are available now, free at participating libraries! Citizen science programs can raise awareness about the importance of ventilation and address inequities in access to air quality monitoring devices.  Now, anyone can check out CO2 monitoring kits at libraries across Arizona and contribute to indoor air research. The kit includes a CO2 monitor, instructions for use, and steps that can be taken to improve indoor air quality and health outcomes. Learn more here:
