This on-screen interactive investigation of air quality in a virtual building leads students through the preparation of a written report. It includes onscreen reference material for guidance. Students can investigate the site, plant room, office space, and car park in a virtual reality simulation. Tasks involve interviewing workers, inspecting machinery, air intakes, and exhausts; and observing the outside environment and conditions through the course of a day. AirSIM will help students identify a range of inadequacies common in buildings and prescribe remedial action to alleviate the incidence of illness and discomfort arising from poor air quality.
