Nursing School

Zagreb, Croatia

Grant amount:



Students at the Nursing School will investigate air pollution in their urban area and compare results with an urban school in Norway. Lichen will be used as an indicator of acidic air pollution along with measurements of aerosol optical thickness using a Calitoo sun photometer and following the GLOBE protocol.

Student data will be compared with that from official air quality monitoring stations to see if the assessment of air quality is similar. A Calitoo instrument will be provided by this grant.


The students produced the following to document and communicate their research results.


Youth Learning as Citizen Environmental Scientists assists and rewards the implementation of inquiry-based, experiential science education where students do science and contribute to understanding of our environment through recognition and financial reward programs.

Grants range from equipment and supplies for taking environmental measurements to recognition and support for students presenting their research projects and working for pervasive inclusion of student research projects in science teaching.
