Sensebox 06: CO2 sensor & build a CO2 traffic light

With the SenseBox, citizens, e.g. school children, can measure location-based environmental data on climate, air quality, traffic volume, noise pollution and much more, thus contributing to more accurate statements about local environmental phenomena.

In this scenario, the children come into contact with the CO2 sensor.
