Putting Next Generation Sensors and Scientists in Practice to Reduce Wood Smoke in a Highly Impacted, Multicultural Rural Setting (NextGenSS)
The project will be a 3-year student-run process, and Heritage University students will not only be working with University of Washington scientists, but also with their local community.
The project is "The Next Generation Sensors and Scientists," and its goal is to reduce the amount of wood smoke pollution in the valley; however, they first need to figure out how much pollution there is and who exactly it is affecting.
Students at Heritage University will work with high school students from White Swan and other schools in the area. The will train the students how to use air pollution sensors and send them home with them in order to gather the wood smoke data.
