Air Detectives

Get sleuthing and become an air detective! Join our Live Science Team for lots of hands-on activities, and discussions all about the air that we breathe.

  • Join us as we explore the future of air quality by exploring how you can collect data about the air where you live to help inform the choices we make for a healthier life
  • Have a go with simple sensors, look at live air quality data and explore what kinds of pollution are in the air - how do levels vary from place to place and at different times?

Air Detectives is part of our ongoing programme of activities exploring climate change and the positive actions we can take together to protect our planet. On the 5 June this year, We The Curious declared a climate emergency, joining other institutions in recognising the urgency to act and pledging to become carbon neutral by 2030.
