Another year of internships has begun and both the Urban Forestry and Air Quality Internships at Richmond High School is off to a great start. The Air Quality Interns started their introduction to learning the topics of human health and air, air pollutants, and climate change.
This year the Air Quality Interns will be measuring carbon emission and developing strategies for their school to reduce the students’ carbon footprints. The interns will also look at hazardous sources of particulate matter in their community and create a proposal to help reduce air pollution in areas of need in Richmond.
Next week the students will begin to a closer look at the subject of climate change.
