  • January 2023 || Science outreach - The chapter conducted a science outreach program in schools in India on air pollution health effects and measures to reduce the exposure to air pollution. The students gained knowledge about wearable particulate matter sensors via hands on session, particulate matter, the good and the bad aerosols, sources of particulate matter in the environment, importance of discussing the topic, measures to reduce exposure to particulate matter on individual, local and global scale. Overall, 200 students attended the science outreach program. 
  • July 2022 || AAAR Lecture Series -The University of Miami AAAR Student Chapter hosted the AAAR Lecture Series that was presented by Dr. Andy May, Associate Professor at Ohio State University in the Department of Chemical and Geodetic Engineering on the topic: Laboratory Evaluation of the Effects of Particle Size and Composition on the Performance of Integrated Devices Containing Plantower Particle Sensors. The lecture was attended by more than 150 attendees with a great question and answer session following the presentation. The recording of the lecture can be viewed here.
