GSS CozIR-AH is out of this world
Gas Sensing Solutions’ carbon dioxide sensors are suitable for a wide range of applications, from healthcare to diving, horticulture and even in space, allowing our customers to monitor levels of CO2 with sensors that are low power, high speed, robust and versatile.
In 2017, The Canadian Space Agency approached Let’s Talk Science with the aim to develop a classroom project designed to raise awareness of Canada’s contributions to space travel. This coincided with an upcoming mission to the International Space Station by astronaut David Saint-Jacques. The following January, $50 million was invested into the introduction of the CanCode programme – An educational curriculum designed to increase educational opportunities and digital skills development for Canadian youths. Let’s Talk Science was successful in securing $2 million of this investment, allowing them to expand the Living Space Project, with the support of Fair Chance Learning.
The project enabled students to monitor their indoor environmental conditions and compare the findings to the conditions found on the International Space Station, recorded by Saint-Jacques. This project gives students a better understanding of the importance of their living conditions and the impact this has on their overall health and wellbeing. It also serves an additional purpose to further develop digital literacy skills, including basic coding.
As part of the collaboration between Fair Chance Learning and Let’s Talk Science, participating educators were provided with educational support and a classroom kit, enabling them to deliver the program to their students. The kit featured an array of materials, including a custom carbon dioxide Monitor by Monk Makes which includes the Gas Sensing Solutions’ CozIR-AH sensor.
