The purpose of the project was to collect air quality data from weather stations at JM Alexander Middle School of Huntersville, North Carolina and Moorehead STEM Academy of Charlotte, North Carolina. The research question was "Is there a relationship between air quality, population growth, and respiratory health?" Students were to collect daily temperature, relative humidity, cloud cover, wind direction and ground ozone data at or around solar noon. We followed GLOBE Ozone and Atmosphere Protocols. Our results are inconclusive due to inconsistent data collection.
