The air quality can have significant impact to human health, especially the Indoor Air Quality (IAQ). However, the textbook in Hong Kong nowadays lacks detailed description of IAQ as well as the monitoring process. In that case, a set of teaching package was needed to promote teaching and learning process about IAQ. On the other hand, the IAQ knowledge is also part of STEM education, which integrates Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics together. The STEM education has been considered as one effective way to make student learning more connected and relevant in recent years. Through asking questions and then discovering the answers by students themselves, inquiry-based learning model could fit well with STEM education which promoting students' critical thinking and innovation.
In this project, a whole set of teaching package was built, which including monitoring instrument, website, relevant teaching materials and so on. The materials and instruments aimed to facilitate teaching and learning process relevant to IAQ. In addition, the sharing sessions and workshops were conducted to secondary school, which also achieved great success.
