Every Breath You Take
Sunday 7 April
Air pollution is in the news daily and in the UK, 40,000 deaths each year are linked to this growing problem. Join Prof D K Arvind to learn about the exciting new development of wearable sensors to measure air pollution and its effects on vulnerable groups, such as young asthmatics, pregnant mothers and patients with chronic obstructive respiratory disease. After the discussion, have a go at wearing the devices on a walk around the museum to visualise your personal dosage of air pollutants.
