Program Description

Event Details

Learn all about air quality in this hands on program! Monitoring of environmental quality is important to help apply methods that reduce human impacts. We will learn some information on what scientists look at to understand air quality, and then use biological indicators and particle sensors to see how to monitor air changes.

This program is sponsored by the Friends of the Southbury Public Library and is a part of our 2022 Teen Summer Reading Program: Beyond the Beaten Path. Find out more about our summer reading program here!
