Air Chemistry in the Garden

Students will conduct an ozone bio-monitoring citizen science project and
other investigations of air pollution in the vicinity of the school garden.
Students will also create a classroom air-filtering garden and explore ways to
reduce air pollution using an online interactive app.

Concepts: Air Pollution | Biomonitoring

Essential Questions

  • How can I estimate ozone air pollution levels by observing plants in the garden?
  • What causes air pollution and how does it affect organisms and ecosystems?
  • What can be done to reduce or mitigate air pollution?
