"Testing the Air" is narrated by children and shows how they have been monitoring air quality both in the playground and outside the school. They've been helped by Brighton & Hove City Council, Imperial College London, Duvas Technologies and the Open Air Laboratories (OPAL) project.
The project has developed pupils' interest in science and increased their understanding about the effects of transport activities on local air quality. The air quality results displayed on a big screen inside the school have helped children learn about the environment and whether activities such as the school run affect air quality.
Elm Grove has been working with community scientists from Imperial and OPAL, and pupils have been carrying out experiments with a portable unit that they can move around the playground to see how emissions travel.
