Breathing Trees: Understand Air Quality with Tree-focused Citizen Science Activities (In-person)

Take a deep cleansing breath of fresh air at The Morton Arboretum and thank the trees!

Content Detail

Take a deep cleansing breath of fresh air at The Morton Arboretum and thank the trees! One of the most overlooked benefits of trees is the removal of air pollution. In this workshop, uncover how your students can collect air quality data and understand how trees, shrubs, and green spaces around your school provide enormous benefits in combating air pollution.

Educators will learn how to use AirBeam2 Sensors and incorporate cross-curricular activities aligned to NGSS and CSS to engage their students in this problem-based learning project. A portion of the day will be spent outdoors and participants should dress for the weather. Participants should bring their own lunch.
