Students in Ralston test air quality for science project
RALSTON, Neb. (FOX42KPTM) —
It's a science project that could one day help you breathe better, and it's being run by children.
The kids at Saint Gerald's Elementary School headed out of the classroom Wednesday to test air quality.
They were looking to figure out the difference between the air in a heavy traffic area and the air in a place with less traffic.
They'll be doing this for the next week to figure out if the traffic and the air have anything to do with each other.
"I’ve realized it’s pretty bad in some places like China, and some places in California it’s really bad, and we need to try and improve that, but Nebraska is pretty good and we need to keep it that way," one student said.
The school partners with a group that encourages small changes to help make a big difference.
