Please explain your topic area more clearly. What do you mean by the household environment? What is the larger global issue that this topic addresses? What is the problem that your team is exploring? How do you plan on researching this topic? What is the field activity that your team plans on doing?

The larger global issue we’re addressing is health and when we say “household environment” we’re referring to a person’s place of residence, where they live and primarily spend most of their time. We’re exploring the effects of molds, bacteria, and other allergens that are present in the household environment on a person’s quality of life and overall health and how these molds can be detected. Our field activity was to explore various housing types, on campus and off, and see how overall cleanliness factored into what the residents deemed to be “livable” and how it may have affected their health.

Great! I think that sounds like a great plan. I will create a category label for your project: Healthy Environments, please use this category label every time your team uploads a post for this project.
