The Smogmobile helps educate primary school children on the dangers of air pollution at Mums for Lungs Clean Air Carnival 2023
ET’s air quality monitoring laboratory - The Smogmobile (et.co.uk was out at last weeks (8th June 2023) Clean Air Carnival in Lambeth, London doing what it does best, showing off its fantastic array of sophisticated air quality monitoring technology for children and adults alike to see it working in practice, producing real-time data on the quality of the air we breathe.
The Mums for Lungs organised event was well received with a large number of local children taking to the streets to learn about the importance of clean air for our minds, bodies and the environment.
ET MD, Duncan Mounsor, attended the event as a STEM ambassador along with some academics from some of the most prestigious scientific organisations in the UK. The event benefitted from the presence of Dr Ian Mudway, Senior Lecturer in the School of Public Health at Imperial College, London and Dr Rosamund Dove a postdoctoral Researcher at The Queen Mary University of London and member of Children’s Health in London and Luton (CHILL).
Duncan, who is passionate about educating the next generation on the dangers of air pollution, commented on the event “As a STEM ambassador I find these types of community outreach events are great opportunities to engage with primary school-aged children. At the carnival It was great to see such a large number of young people really interested in learning about air quality and how it is measured by instruments such as those utilised in our fully electric, Smogmobile.
As a company, we really value opportunities such as this to talk to the public, in particular the younger members, about the wide-reaching effects of pollution. It helps towards influencing a more considered mindset when it comes to making everyday choices about how our actions can affect environmental issues such as air pollution. “
ET’s Smogmobile will take a short rest now until Clean Air Day on June 15th when it will be zooming down the M4 to Newport to monitor and raise awareness in South Wales.
