- Teaching environmental science, robotics, and air quality workshops to K-12 students. Our experienced team will organize several workshops for students of different ages including soldering, sensors, climate change, environmental science, and other relevant topics to understand the challenges of air quality in the San Joaquin Valley.
- Do-It-Yourself workshops for families, including how to make your own low-cost air filter. SEEN will provide all the necessary materials for the participating families.

We will partner with teachers and local leaders to create the best possible curricula for children and families.
SEEN is already partnering with AirGradient, a socially-committed manufacturer of low-cost, open-source air quality solutions. Open AirGradient is the organizational unit of AirGradient aiming to increase air quality awareness by providing open-source air quality monitoring hardware and by freely collaborating with other organizations to share knowledge and data with the public.
