Absolutely not! What's so exciting about the INHALE Project is that the air monitoring equipment is so easy to use, anyone can do it! In fact, projects like these often call their volunteers 'citizen scientists' because anyone with the motivation to improve their community who enjoys collecting information can get involved. With the simple push of a button, the air monitoring device automatically starts taking air samples every ten seconds and analyzes the level of air pollution in the sample. All this information is recorded onto a microchip inside the device so you don't even need a pen and paper! The GPS unit fits in your pocket and automatically records the route you traveled so you don't need a map.
