This project aims to determine solutions to improve indoor air quality (IAQ) in U.S. school buildings that can accommodate each school’s needs. This project will compile knowledge regarding common issues school buildings face that contribute to poor IAQ and possible solutions to remedy their effects while considering the cost-efficiency of said solutions. The methods of research in this project include the review of academic literature, an online survey, and interviews of students and faculty on the Binghamton University campus. The results of this project serve as guidelines to help school districts more easily determine a cost-efficient system to improve IAQ in their school buildings, therefore, improving the well-being of the students and staff. This project will be conducted via collaboration between student and faculty researchers to develop solutions to poor IAQ environments in school buildings to provide a foundation for future research.
