Description: This report discusses applications of wireless sensors in monitoring Indoor Air Quality in the classroom environment. Abstract: The focus of this research project was to investigate Indoor Air Quality monitoring technologies, government regulations and policies, and best practices to improve IAQ while minimizing the adverse effect of poor IAQ, specifically in the classroom environment. The investigation involved two parts: development of a cost effective indoor air quality prototype sensor unit and the deployment of the unit to monitor 5 different indoor locations. The data from the sample monitoring locations will then be compiled and analyzed. In addition, researching the literature was instrumental in establishing the parameters for testing the environment and conducting experiments. This provided valuable experiences which will be shared with both district teachers and students.
