Summary:As part of a NASA-funded project, NASA is looking for interested citizen scientists to use low-cost air quality sensors to measure particle concentrations in their neighborhood.  The data will be used to help understand differences between estimates using satellite data and that measured using ground monitors. Citizen Scientists will have opportunity to interact with the project team and other citizens to explore questions of their own.
