The goal of this VIP course is to get students engaged in the design and deployment of low-cost air quality sensors on the Georgia Tech campus and around Atlanta, in the analysis of the resulting data streams, and in the development of new policies and practices to address poor air quality on campus and beyond. Throughout the VIP, we focus on building strong collaborative research skills, wherein students work with a diverse set of faculty experts who represent three different Colleges at Georgia Tech.
Issues Involved or Addressed
We have a strong focus on equity and environmental justice in our research, recognizing that the impacts of poor air quality fall disproportionately on vulnerable community members, whether on the Georgia Tech campus or in Atlanta's low-income communities of color.
