Green Cities Air Quality Management Game

This resource produced by Siemens introduces students to the impacts that population size and pollution have upon air quality. A series of worksheets allow students to identify equipment used to measure different types of weather activity and construct a population pyramid for a fictional "Green City". They analyse the link between populations of different environments (urban, rural, village, suburban, metropolis, borough, city and town) to air quality.

A research task to produce a front page news article centres around the main causes of human pollution in cities and how air quality is measured. There is opportunity to debate and discuss the main issues of pollution and sustainability and make a 3D model of a future technological advance that reduces pollution. Separate teacher notes are provided.

The resource is supported by an interactive online game which simulates how a city can control its air quality in different weather conditions by restricting traffic flows or increasing the use of electric vehicles.
