We chose to study how the amount of air circulation affects the amount of radon detected. We wanted to do this because radon fascinated us, as it is the radioactive decay of elements like uranium, and causes serious health effects in large doses. Our experiment showed that air circulation does not affect the amounts of radon detected, however this is not concrete and further testing would be beneficial. Our project is important because the more we as a society know about radon, the better we can reduce our exposure, and our project is on piece of that.

One thought on “The Effect of Air Circulation on Detected Radon Levels in a Residential Setting

  1. This is a good project regardless if it is inconclusive. Sometimes our work does not result in final conclusion, but we gain a lots of knowledge on how to improve experiment next time. Good job!
