[Science Espresso] ADEM: To measure is to know
Get ready for a short but powerful science espresso of ADEM! A team of passionate civilians gives everything they have to raise awareness about the quality of the air that you, your friends, your neighbor, the baker around the corner, … breathe in every day.
ADEM is a prime example of a project carried by non-scientists that aims to collect data on the air quality in the city. A team of 20 civilians-experts developed a DIY-kit which allows the measuring devices to be low cost, easily accessible, repairable and adaptable, and produced locally.
With the ADEM team.
