“It’s citizen-science—that’s the main goal,” Guler says. “We’re trying to interact with people on the street and see what they’re trying to do with the information they see. I don’t plan to argue that this is the most accurate data because there are many potential reasons for differences in air quality reports. We want to just keep it up, upload the data, and focus on that more after we come back.”

The project has already received grants from The Awesome Foundation and the Black Rock Arts Foundation. In June they launched a Kickstarter with a $2,500 goal.
