Welcome to AIRU


We are bringing low-cost, air quality sensors and teaching modules to high-school and middle school classrooms along the Wasatch Front. Researchers at the University of Utah are partnering with teachers, environmental advocates and citizen-scientists to identify, understand, and begin to address the region’s air quality challenges and develop a novel strategy for community-science and the evaluation of sensor performance.

Our team was honored to be selected to present our building-block, air-quality sensor and teaching modules at the National Science Fair and Expo in Washington, DC on April 6 - 8th. See the video and pictures.

See our hands-on teaching module about the causes of an inversion. You also get the chance to blow bubbles. Check out the video here.
