Urban Citizen Science Programme
Recent Projects - June / July 2017
The Urban Citizen Science program was delivered to 23 year 5 pupils at St Helen's School in Brixton.
The school is situated next to a main road in central Brixton, one of Lambeth's air quality hot spots, and the local council have been working with them on strategies for reducing pupils' exposure to air pollution in arrange of ways, including a formal air quality monitoring program (for both NO2 and particulate matter) and plans to install a 'green screen' of plants on the wall between the playground and Brixton Road.
We are a non-profit organisation founded by former London Deputy Mayor, Nicky Gavron. The UCS is project managed by Iram Quraishi. School deployment and lesson plans are designed by Caroline Hardman. Community engagement and support was delivered by Kabelo Thomo. Programme evaluation and guidance was provided by Han Pham of Intel Labs Europe.
