All our teaching materials are linked to the current national curriculum. Subjects covered include all sciences, geography, maths, environmental sciences, ICT, PHSE
There is a wide range of materials available for key stage 1 - 4.
Schools that have an AirSensa unit can access real-time data from their own site, offering a unique contextualised learning experience. Students can use local data to power understanding like never before.
The data and technology can be used to teach much more than just air pollution. It can be used in its raw format for lessons such as ICT and maths, the technology can be used in Design and Technology and, overall, it can be the basis of school wide projects.
Deliver Change offers informative, engaging and inspirational talks to any age group of any size. Topics covered can be tailored to suit the age group, interest, event type and specific interests of the school, and can include:
These presentations can be incorporated into the curriculum, extra-curricula activities, or specific school events such as computing days, World Environment Day, green weeks, sustainability days, science festivals, etc.
There are 1,148 schools in London within 150 metres of a busy road (with 10,000+ vehicles a day). While we can’t do much about the location of existing schools, we believe that it is possible to do something about how much pollution children must endure.
We are now expanding our schools programme to provide richer data than ever about how pollution affects school premises in heavily polluted locations, by co-locating an AirSensa continuous monitoring unit with NO2 diffusion tubes (which measure average pollution over time).
The diffusion tubes will allow us to collect data from multiple points on a school premises to show how gases distribute (and can be shielded against somewhat); the AirSensa unit will show how pollution fluctuates over time – minute by minute.
While Deliver Change is primarily responsible for the sponsorship of AirSensas for schools, we also encourage and support schools to take control – if they so wish. There are many benefits and ways to do so (detailed below), but it is important to highlight that finding your own sponsors is by no means necessary. It is in Deliver Change’s interest to find sponsors for schools, but – we are only a small organisation and welcome any help or support.
You can get one quicker. Most sponsors will specify a specific school or schools, but there are some who do not have preferences. It is these sponsors that fund the first come, first served list. For that reason, it may be some time before a unit is sponsored and ready for a school on the waiting list. Therefore, if a school can find a sponsor – the delivery and installation would be a lot quicker.
You could get multiple for your site. While Deliver Change offers 2 AirSensas for large sites or multiple campuses, this again could take time. You may wish engage with a sponsor to get multiple AirSensas for your school.
A great opportunity for developing community relationships. AirSensa, improving education and enhancing health is a great topic for a community as a whole to engage with – providing the perfect opportunity to make new connections and relationships, encouraging local businesses to support their local school.
Businesses of varying sizes are motivated to support their local community; perhaps it is the large multi-national or maybe a collective of small, local businesses.
The parents/guardians of your pupils have a vested interest in the standard of education and the health of their children. They, therefore, may be able to engage with the company they work for, or are even the owners themselves.
In the past, there has been funding available from various sources, e.g. the Majors office, to support projects in schools. Deliver Change will do their best to keep schools up-to-date with any relevant funding that may be available.
School news bulletins is a great way to engage with your potential audience, be it an online bulletin, a school newsletter, social media or printed leaflet
It would be possible to have face-to-face discussions at school or community events
Asking the school community (such as parents and teachers) to enquire in their personal network, to see if anyone would be interested.
