The mission of CAPS is to turn apathy into action, empowering communities to tackle issues around their local environments through citizen science and collective action. We have a vision that no-one will breathe dirty air and that our communities will have the tools to tackle this issue and campaign for change. The CAPS Project teaches students about air quality and how to build portable air quality sensors to monitor and track pollution.
Learning about air pollution, its causes, the dangers, and the solutions.
Building, wiring, soldering, and assembling the air pollution sensors.
Learning code to access the air quality data collected by the sensors.
