Are you looking for ways to teach NGSS practices in your math and science classes, or just want to learn more about Hawai‘i’s air quality? Researchers and scientists from the Massachusetts Institite of Technology (MIT) are partnering with The Kohala Center to create an air-sensor network on Hawai‘i Island. The network will be comprised of 30 to 40 sensor nodes to measure vog and weather. Data will be publicly accessible.
