MY NYC Air App: Air Quality Monitoring

Grantee:High School for Environmental Studies / New York City, New York

Grant Type: ecoTech


Students at the High School for Environmental Studies in NYC were awarded a $2,500 ecoTech Grant from the Captain Planet Foundation.

This grant allowed 300 students to develop and use hand-held air quality sensors and refurbished cell phones to aircast data to monitor building emissions in their community.

This student-designed project allows the community to understand which building are responsible for the most air pollutants so they can take environmental justice action, as necessary for student health.
