Scientific outreach brings a breath of fresh air

NAME PhD student Dan Blight (University of Manchester) was recently involved in The Great Science Share Clean Air Challenge. This is a brilliant opportunity for engagement between scientists and over 3,000 primary school children across Greater Manchester. The project aims to highlight the importance of planning for a cleaner future, and to inspire the pupils to engage in scientific enquiry. Supported by the link scientists, the pupils have carried out an investigation into air pollution levels within their schools. They’re now analysing their findings and will present them at the Great Science Share for Schools in June. The project was organised by the Science and Engineering Education Research and Innovation Hub (SEERIH) and the Royal Society.
